Five reasons to complete your degree before transferring or entering the workforce!
According to the American Association of Community Colleges, it is estimated that by the year 2020, nearly 65% of jobs in the U.S. will require education or training post-high school and the more education, the higher the earnings!
- Reasonable Tuition
Students who live in-district only pay $139 per credit hour while students attending a public four-year institution pay on average $325 per credit hour. Why not transfer as many credit hours as possible at a reasonable tuition rate?
