Attending college is a must for any eventual job seeker in the US today. Despite the skyrocketing cost and the problem of stagnating wages that don’t keep up with the demands of college loans, if you don’t have a degree, you will find it very difficult to compete in the jobs market.
Sadly, the well-documented barriers to higher education stop many people from trying to get a degree at all, whether they are fresh out of high school or recently laid off due to changes in the economy. If you are in this situation, we encourage you to take a deep breath and get back in the game. There are ways to minimize the cost and leap the barriers to that college degree.
One great way to earn a degree is through an online program. These are becoming more popular every year. With an online degree, the deadline is often rolling so that you can apply at any time, not just at the beginning of the term at the school’s physical location.
