Higher Education

Higher Education Pays Off!Continuing your education will help you to greatly increase your earning potential!  Consider this - a person with a bachelor's degree will earn nearly $1 million more during his or her lifetime than a high school graduate.  The 2000 Census Bureau survey indicates that a college graduate can expect to make $2.1 million working full-time between the age of 25 and 64.  A person with a master's degree is expected to make $2.5 million, while someone with a professional degree, such as a lawyer or doctor, is expected to earn $4.4 million over their working life.  According to the bureau report, a high school graduate can expect to make $1.2 million over the same time period.  These figures mean that investing in a degree or some sort of professional certification is probably one of the best investments you can make!  Plus, you should keep in mind that these figures are based on 1999 salaries and that as salaries increase over time it is likely that the gap between the earning potential of degree holders and non-degree holders will only  increase.
