7. Would you prefer a school with more part-time or more full-time students?
Full-time students have the advantage of earning their associate's degree in less time. However, according to a coalition of five higher education groups, attending college full time isn't always the best way to get to graduation, at least for adult community college students who have previously pursued a degree and dropped out. Source Check none, any or all.
Schools in which more than 60% of the students are full-time
Schools with an about equal mix of full- and part-time students where 40% to 60% of the students are part-time
Schools in which more than 60% of the students are part-time
Prioritize your choice above:
Low Priority High Priority

Under-graduate students over the age of 25 are considered "non-traditional". These older students tend to more mature, disciplined and bring a greater level experience to the classroom. Check none, any or all.

Schools in which 25% to 50% of the students are over 25 years-old
Schools in which more than 50% of the students are over 25 years-old

9. What's your college budget?

Because of family income, scholarships and other considerations. Individual students may pay more or less than what is typical. Out-of-state students generally can expect to pay more. Check none, any or all.
