NANTICOKE — A new study that gauged how much students can save by going to a community college for the first two years of a four-year degree ranked Pennsylvania as offering the third best savings nationwide, and the president of Luzerne County Community College said the data suggest LCCC is an even better bargain than the state average.
Student Loan Hero compared the cost of earning a four-year degree two ways: attending all four years at a public institution, or attending a community college for two years before transferring to a four-year school. The comparison was made for each state.
