Go to CSU? Or CCC to UC route?

<p>Hey guys, I was wondering if I should go straight to a CSU when I graduate high school or should I go to a CCC then transfer to a UC. You're probably asking me why not just go straight to a UC. Well, I don't really have to money, and yes, I know that there's going to be grants and scholarship and whatnot. But just tell me what you guys think about the situation. CSU or CCC then transfer to UC. Pros and Cons?</p>

<p>UCs tend to give good in-state financial aid, often resulting in cheaper net prices than CSUs outside of commuting range. You should run net price calculators on the web sites of UCs and CSUs you are interested in, rather than assuming what is more or less expensive. (Note: CSUs’ net price calculators are centralized on [CSUMentor</a> - Financial Aid - PAIS](<a href=“http://www.csumentor.edu/finaid/pais/]CSUMentor”>http://www.csumentor.edu/finaid/pais/) ; UCs’ net price calculators can be found by searching for “net price calculator” or “financial aid estimate” on their web sites.)</p>

<p>Other than cost, the relative merits of UCs, CSUs, and going directly as a frosh versus starting at CC depend on various aspects specific to you (e.g. intended major, or how decided you are; whether you are advanced, on-level, or in need of remediation, etc.).</p>
