Take classes here, then transfer

Students often come here to take only a few courses, then transfer to another school. Sometimes they want to start here to get into the swing of college; other students take classes here while home on break.

Students here enjoy small class sizes, no teaching assistants, and tuition fees that are nearly a third of those at four-year colleges. They also find courses every bit as rigorous as those at four-year schools.
