Earning a College Degree is Still a Great Accomplishment

It is no surprise that prospective students are confused about whether to proceed with a college education.

The high price of tuition has millions feeling frustrated; and many are asking whether returning to school is worth the time, effort or cost.

As a result, quite a few folks give up without fully exploring their options.

So they end up closing the door on what could have been one of the most transforming opportunities of a lifetime.

Yet, no one should give up their college dreams, because the following is still true about higher education:

  • Overall, college graduates make significantly more money than those without a degree.
  • Skilled and well-educated applicants still walk away with the best jobs over unskilled applicants.
  • Gaining an advanced degree is necessary for moving into management and administrative positions in most fields, i.e. in business, criminal justice, health care, and other high-demand careers.
  • There are painless ways to pay for an education through scholarships, Pell Grants, military education plans, employee tuition reimbursement programs, low-cost student loans, community colleges, tuition-free state colleges, working and paying for college while enrolled in online schools, etc. Some of these are not well-publicized and have to be unearthed before and during the enrollment process.
  • The satisfaction and fulfillment of gaining a college education is priceless.

Of course, it is important to make an informed decision about where to enroll, which career options offer the best jobs, whether to enroll in full or part-time education programs, and how to pay for it.

But most importantly, the answer is yes, a college education is now and always will be a worthy accomplishment.
