The Value of a College Degree

Increase your job prospects

Experts predict there will be a shortage of 18 million college-educated workers in the U.S. by 2020. That means lots of job opportunity for individuals who have earned their college degrees.

Boost your salary potential

On average, people with a college degree earn up to 40% more per year than those with a high school diploma and almost 30% more than those with an associate degree. That’s a difference of almost $24,000 each year in expected gross income.

Expand your network

In college, you will have the chance to build relationships for life, including friends who share your passions and interests as well as professors, alumni, mentors and donors who can serve as valuable connections throughout your career.
