Associate Degrees are Becoming Valuable
Did you know that more than 20% of all those individuals employed in Science and Engineering occupations have less than a bachelors degree?
Of the more than four million individuals employed in science and engineering in the United States as of April 2003, 17% listed their highest level of education as an Associates Degree.
According to the US Census Bureau, an Associate Degree holder earns an average of $1.6 million over his/her adult working life compared to high school graduates who will earn an average of $1.2 million beyond graduation.
It is not too late to get into an Associate Degree program this fall!
