Degree Power

Of the many investments a person can make, few provide a higher return than a college education. After all, more jobs than ever require education beyond high school, so college graduates will have more jobs to choose from.

And if the size of your paycheck matters, you should know that having a college education usually means you’ll earn more than a person without a degree. In fact, studies show that the typical full-time worker with a four-year college degree earns over 60% more than a high school graduate throughout their working lives.

Finally, where you get your education matters, too. According to, when it comes to starting and mid-career earning potential, graduates from the University of Redlands place in the top 30 of all liberal arts colleges across the nation.
