1. Value of Higher Education
 

Did you know that the average student who obtains a bachelor’s degree makes a million dollars more than with just a high school diploma?  Bachelor degree holders make an average of $56,000 per year, while high school diploma holders make an average of $31,000 per year.  Over the course of a lifetime, that $25,000 difference adds up to a million dollars.

Additionally, more than 86 percent of all jobs in the job market require at least a two-year degree. Earning a college degree gives you more choices and increases your earning potential.

What is college? When we talk about college or higher education, we are referring to any education program after high school—that includes 4-year public and private colleges and universities, as well as community colleges, and technical and vocational schools. The most important thing when you’re choosing a college is to find the school that’s the best fit for you.
