There are plenty of other career paths to consider.
Traditional 4-year colleges that lead to a bachelor’s degree aren’t always the right path for everyone, whether it’s because of cost, time, or career interests. Here are some other options you may want to consider.
1. Consider community colleges
Community colleges offer 2-year associate degrees and certificates that help prepare you for a certain career and, if needed, position you to transfer to a 4-year college to earn a bachelor's degree. They’re often an affordable choice with relatively low tuition.
2. Look into vocational-technical and career colleges
Vocational-technical and career colleges offer specialized training in a particular industry or career, such as culinary arts, firefighting, dental hygiene, and medical-records technology. They typically offer certificates or associate degrees.
3. Join the military
The military can be an attractive path for many students after high school, with perks that include a competitive salary, free health care, room and board, paid college tuition through the GI Bill, and retirement with benefits after 20 years.
