College Education’s High Price Tag

Higher education’s soaring costs are one of today’s biggest financial hurdles. Most students attend college to get a better job and more competitive salary. But the price tag for college might be undermining the value of the degree. Many are asking the question: Is it even worth it?

According to the College Board, in the last decade alone, in-state tuition and fees at public four-year institutions grew by 16% in inflation-adjusted dollars.

Only 60% of the 2,200 adults polled in early March said higher education possesses the best track to future success.1

Did You Know

Though college costs continue to rise, it seems that earning your degree still matters. College graduates typically earn significantly more money throughout their lifetimes. In addition, a college degree can open doors—of the 11.6 million jobs created since 2010, over 8.4 million jobs have gone to bachelor’s degree holders. The key is finding a college that leads you to a degree for a rewarding, lucrative career at a price that you can afford.
