College or post-secondary education has become more and more important in the United States over the years. Most good paying, professional jobs require a four-year college degree before anyone can even apply for an entry-level job.

Although college can be expensive, there are several ways to fund the education with loans, grants, scholarships, work-study or other financial aid packages. Most major universities and colleges have financial aid offices who can help plan financing options.

Smaller community colleges are generally much less expensive and offer courses and training in a wide array of skilled trades such as automotive repair, welding, and electrical, to name a few.

Community colleges like Southeast Community College in Lincoln also offer preparation courses for citizenship, GED and English language.
