Many students enter two-year community colleges with the plan of later enrolling at a university to earn a bachelor's degree. Before transferring, should you complete 5 paragraph essay degree - or will it just be a waste of time? Attending a community college for two years and earning an associate degree are not the same. Are there any perks to doing so?

Ultimately, students who complete an associate degree program are more likely to earn a bachelor's degree upon transfer than their non-degreed counterparts, says a study by the Community College Research Center.

Should you need more information to come to a decision, here are a few things to keep in mind when deciding if you should complete your associate degree before transferring to a four-year university:

Narrow your focus
Many students spend at least the first two years of college trying to figure out what it is they want to do. Without careful planning and good academic advice, this can result in a variety of credits that don't actually amount to much. But plan ahead - an associate degree takes the level of preparation you'll need to be successful in a bachelor's degree program, and may keep you from having to take certain intro-level courses at your new school.

If you enter into a four-year degree program with a two-year degree, you're already ahead of the game. You have demonstrated perseverance and an interest in a subject area, even if you change your major later on. Structured sets of classes may transfer better, which can be a plus for those who hold an associate degree.
