Question:
Private and independent colleges, recognizing a business opportunity, are stepping up their recruitment of transfer students.

For example, Renton Technical College recently signed a transfer agreement with DeVry University, which allows students who earn an associate-of-applied-science degree at Renton to transfer directly into DeVry's bachelor of science in Technical Management program. DeVry has a campus in Federal Way and a center in Bellevue.

Argosy University/Seattle and Seattle Community Colleges recently agreed to allow graduates of any one of Seattle's three community colleges to enroll in Argosy's bachelor's degree completion programs in psychology and business.

Copetas, Western Washington's admissions director, said regardless of whether students plan to transfer to public or private schools, paying attention to details will help prevent spending more time or money than necessary.

"Students need to start making career choices earlier," Copetas said.

Answer:
I think community colleges are wonderful places that definitely need to remain and stay dirt cheap. I also firmly believe that they aren't the right place for many graduates. People who are focused and academically inclined should go to a four year college after high school where most people are their own age and hopefully experience dorm life and move out of the house.
