FACTS

According to the National Student Clearing Research Center, the fall enrollment of 2020 records a 4.4% drop from 2019’s numbers. Come 2020; college enrollees continue to drop in numbers, this time by 3.3% from the previous year’s total.

College tuition costs have increased by 1,375% since 1978. (Education Data, 2021)

Students are more engaged in education and highly motivated about their future when they have a clear understanding of themselves and how they might live and work when they leave school. (Schlechty, 2001)

Your degree isn't always that important to employers. Despite what you'd like to believe, many employers won't care where you went to school, or even what you earned your degree in. They'll focus instead on your skills. (USA News, Lindsay Olsen)
