    Many people choose a community college because they are relatively inexpensive and convenient (if you can commute from home, you can save money on room and board).

    However a community college may not meet your needs, there are a handful of colleges that offer free tuition to every admitted student. They include:
    Alice Lloyd College
    Berea College
    College of the Ozarks
    Cooper Union
    Curtis Institute of Music
    Deep Springs College
    Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering
    Webb Institute
    United States Air Force Academy
    United States Coast Guard Academy
    United States Merchant Marine Academy
    United States Military Academy at West Point
    United States Naval Academy
    Each has its own orientation and admissions requirement (see: http://scholarshipmentor.com/freetuition-colleges)

    There are also many colleges that offer full scholarships to some of their students. Others give partial scholarships and financial aid to students lowering their costs dramatically.

    Sometimes, the college with the lowest price tag is not the least expensive option (after you take into account financial aid and scholarships). If you want to keep your costs down, your best bet is to look at the whole package.
