Why go to college or career school?
The skyrocketing costs of higher education can lead you to wonder if the education investment still makes sense. This is especially true when the annual cost of attending a private college can easily exceed the annual salary a graduate receives during their first few years of employment. A college education is an investment that pays off. However, investing in a college or a graduate school education is seldom inexpensive. Planning for these expenses has become increasingly important over the last decade, as college costs have increased at over twice the inflation rate.
Here’s a simple equation: a college or career school education = more money, more job options, and more freedom. Learn more about exploring career options, choosing a school and getting ready financially and academically from the U.S. Department of Education (opens new window).
