I disagree that's not true

That's not true, both community and university programs may or may not offer Visa sponsorship. The type of the program has nothing to do with it's willingness to sponsor Visa.

In fact, since community programs, are usually more IMG friendly than University programs, then it's more likely that they sponsor visa than University programs.
