Although going to college can be great for you, it can be pricey due to factors like tuition, housing, administrative costs, and more. To manage these outrageous prices, people apply for financial aid, scholarships, and work-study programs. Some also attend community colleges before transferring to four-year universities to lower their overall costs. Others might choose online programs or part-time studies to balance work and education. It’s all about finding the right path for you!

There are many popular options for colleges in Colorado and even other states around the country. It is safe to say that Chatfield alumni are brilliant and are striving for great things in the future.
