Why go to a community college first? The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation has an answer

Did you know that starting your educational path at a community college makes you more likely to succeed?

A recent study by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation shows that community college students who transfer to selective four-year institutions perform as well as—or better than—their peers who enrolled directly from high school.

Graduation rates of community college transfer students match or even exceed those of students who start at four-year institutions as freshmen. Plus, community college students graduate at higher rates than students who transfer from other four-year schools!

So take heart, Hornets: Starting at SUNY Broome will give you the best possible start for your future, whether you’re looking to transfer or enter the work world.
