Is College Right for Me? 3 Great Reasons to Go to College

"/argosyuniversityblog/image.axd?picture=%2f2017%2f08%2fwoman+thinking.jpg"

“Is college right for me?”

It’s a question that anyone who's ever attended college has had to ask—and answer.

Whether you’re a recent high school graduate or you’re 35 years old and looking for ways to elevate your career to the next level, it’s a life-changing decision—and a big commitment. For many would-be students, the thought of the time, money and energy required to earn a college degree can be overwhelming—and sometimes even hard to justify.

So is that degree really worth all that’s required to earn it? Here are three factors that suggest the answer is “yes”:

1: You’ll earn more money over the course of your career.

The income gap between high school and college graduates has widened. A 2014 report published by the Federal Reserve Board of San Francisco shows that a college graduate can expect to earn $830,000 more over the course of his or her career than someone earning a high school diploma. The report concludes: “Although there are stories of people who skipped college and achieved financial success, for most Americans the path to higher future earnings involves a four-year degree. We show that the value of a college degree remains high, and that the average college graduate can recover the cost of attending in less than 20 years.”

2: Research shows that there are many benefits of college reaped beyond financial success.

According to It’s Not Just the Money: The Benefits of College Education to Individuals and Society , authored by Philip Trostel, a professor at The University of Maine School of Economics, Americans with a bachelor’s degree enjoy numerous benefits and advantages in comparison to high school graduates who have never attended college, including:

  • Life expectancy (at age 25) is seven years longer for those having at least some college.
  • Their likelihood of having health insurance through employment is 47 percent higher.
  • Their probability of being married is 21 percent higher—and their probability of being divorced or separated is 61 percent lower.
  • Their incidence of poverty is 3.5 times lower.
  • Their probability of being in prison or jail is 4.9 times lower.

Trostel’s paper, published by the Lumina Foundation, an independent, private foundation committed to making opportunities for learning beyond high school available to all, also notes that the likelihood of college graduates reporting their health to be very good or excellent is 44 percent greater.

3: Having a college degree can help to make it easier to land a good job—even when that position doesn’t necessarily require a degree.

As the job market becomes increasingly competitive, “College Degree Preferred” increasingly means “College Degree Required”. Many college graduates are applying for—and getting—jobs that don’t require a degree. An employer who receives dozens of applications is likely to create unofficial, unspoken filters before sifting through applications. If 50 applicants have college degrees and 50 others don’t, which stack do you think is going to be reviewed more seriously?

Many schools, including Argosy University, offer online programs or blended programs in which students take some classes on campus and others online. If you’ve thought through the reasons to attend college and decide it’s time to begin, be sure to connect quickly with a student advisor at the school you choose. He or she can guide you through the enrollment process, provide valuable advice, and help you stack the odds of success in your favor.
