Sometimes, tuition and fees for an in-state university can even be more expensive than an out-of-state community college, right?

    Possible. Universities do tend to be more expensive than community colleges, with more facilities, more highly qualified & more highly paid professors, etc.

    Out of state CC?  Community colleges are for the students who live in the area. They do not offer dorms. So if you live by the CC you can establish residency for in area tuition. 

    So on state tuition at a university  would be more.

    If you happen to live in driving distance of that out of state community college and don't have to pay for living expenses. Ideally, do your two years at any community college and then transfer to a 4 year. If you get along with your parents, living at home will help you come out debt free (or nearly so).  Some states are much better bargains than others. NYS schools only charge out of state residents about $30k for tuition/room/board where as Delaware, Maryland and Penn charge non-residents about $40k for the same.  Some states also offer free in-state tuition at a four year school and nothing is cheaper than free.
