Dash: ‘If I have to go to community college for 2 years I’ll do that, then transfer to a 4 year college and use the money you’ve saved.

Both my younger son and his girlfriend (now his wife) went to our Community College for 3 years. DS worked part-time at a local grocery store while going to community college. Later when he was going to a near by University (still living at home) started a new full time job in his related field which helped pay for college and as soon as he graduated they offered him a new position.

My DIL went on to UC Berkeley where she graduated with honors in two years. She then went on to Stanford for her PHD where she received a full scholarship and stipend.

Moral of story, going to a community college can be a great start.
