JUDSON’S FREE APPLICATION FOR FEDERAL STUDENT AID (FAFSA) CODE: 001700
The Value of a Degree
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, figures from 2017 show that individuals with a bachelor’s degree earn on average $463 more in median weekly wages than high school graduates with no college education. Multiplied by fifty-two weeks, that’s an average $24,336 more each year. Individuals with a bachelor’s degree are also 46% less likely to be unemployed than high school graduates with no college education. A college education pays off considerably in the long term for many individuals in many careers.
