Returning to college is an investment in your future. Like all investments, it demands time and money. Invest both wisely, though, and you’ll get a massive return. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), in 2021, those with a bachelor’s degree had median weekly earnings of $525 more than those with just a high school diploma. With an average student loan debt of around $30,000 per borrower, you could earn enough to repay your loans in just over a year. Careers in demand offer the safest bet with the largest potential return.
