Hi there! An associates degree can be a good first step for many but I would suggest a community college in your area to obtain. The connections you can make with professors in person and other students studying similar things will give you a good start to building a professional network.

If you are unsure what you want to do for a living, an associates degree is a more cost effective way to figure it out. If you decide what you want to do would require a 4 year degree, I would have an idea of where you would want to go for a bachelors while pursuing your associates to ensure classes could transfer at a later time. Talk to your advisor at that university (another benefit of a community college vs. an online school) about what you could want to do and potential transfer universities and they will be able to help you build a course schedule that will help you achieve your goals.

I'm not familiar with campus.org and I usually tell people to stick with schools that are more recognizable even if that recognition is to your state or area as it can make getting a job easier.

Is there any particular reason you are looking into campus.org? I honestly know nothing about it, but anything online that is not an accredited university may not be in your favor. If you are unsure about your career path, you could always attend a community college near you and take a variety of classes to help you figure that out. Community college is a cheaper option, and once you have your associates degree you can apply to a four year school and earn your bachelors degree.

Do you know what you want to go to college for? If you want an associate's degree, go to a community college, but obtain an area of study where there is a job market. I have been to some community colleges and I have not been impressed with the quality of their classes. If you want to go to a university, tell them that you are undecided and concentrate on your core courses. Often though, when you do and because the last two years of your bachelor's degree you are in your major, the courses are going to be much harder. Also, if you go to a community college, you are going to use up your pell grant. I went to a community college and now if I had to do it all again, I would have gone on to college and declared an "undecided" major--that is if I was undecided about my major. When deciding on a major at a university, please check the job market for those types of jobs. There is no point in going through college or a university and graduating only to encounter a poor job market.
