“General education courses are general education courses and prerequisites are prerequisites. Why pay double when you don't have to? At Massasoit, financial aid covered the cost of my tuition, fees and books. I commute to BSU and, thus far, have been able to pay monthly without taking a loan.”

"If you're not 100 percent positive in what you want to do, starting at a community college is smart. In a sense, going to Bristol Community College helped me grow up. I couldn't rely on someone else, I had to just do it. I commuted to Fall River, Taunton and Attleboro for my classes to learn to get ready to work."
