  • Can you go to community college during the summer?

Yes, community colleges are year-round and they are an excellent way to get your first two years of college under your belt at a much reduced price. Also, you can go at a slower pace than a four year college which is far more expensive, and they are far less interested in your education and far more interested in your money. You will also get a much better feel for what a college education is and not have to go through the trauma of being a freshman in a big university. Just make sure that the credits you earn in a community college are transferrable to your university of choice.

I received Pell Grants for Fall and Spring and had to pay for Summer in cash, even though the two combined was only $3100. If that helps at all.

talk with the admission office at your uni about which credits they will accept from the cc then get a transient student letter to take with you to the community college you want to go ahead & get this process started if you have used FAFSA for fall & spring, you won't have money remaining to use for summer & will have to pay out of pocket

Yes, as long as your school and the CC have articulation agreements; this is, they accept each other's credits and courses. Check first to see, otherwise you will just be wasting time and money.

If you mean you'll just be attending a community college while you're home for summer break then yes. You'll need a copy of your transcripts and make sure the courses you're taking are equivalent to the ones you plan to take during the summer at the community college. You don't want spend your entire summer in school to only find out the credits can only be used for unrestricted electives, etc
