Fact: 60 percent of jobs by 2020 will require a college credential.
It’s a proven fact that if you commit to your education today, you will earn more tomorrow and be better prepared for the changes life will throw at you. Here are the facts:
Students who earn their associate degree or certificate can expect to earn as much as $8,000 more per year and about $500,000 more in a lifetime than a high school graduate
People change jobs up to 10 times in their working lives – and when you are job-hunting, a college credential will always give you an edge.
Credential holders are more likely to keep their jobs. Unemployment for community college graduates is typically 30 percent lower than for high school grads.
Think about the future: college graduates tend to live longer, healthier lives and the children of college graduates are more likely to graduate themselves.
Community college completion is your pathway to greater earning potential and unlimited opportunities. That’s why CCBC is committed to getting you to the finish line.
Whether you want to earn a degree or certificate, obtain transfer credits, or earn an essential workplace credential, CCBC offers the programs and support that can help you succeed.
