Higher Education And Online Learning Continue To Gain Traction

Author : Wesley Mccormick

Although many people think of college students as young, energetic degree seekers, a new report by the Center for Law and Social Policy and the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems reveals that college credentials are just as important for adults.

The report states that in the future, finding a job without a college degree may prove to be difficult. By 2018, about two-thirds of all U.S. jobs will require postsecondary education. Additionally, the demand for college-educated employees will grow about two to three times faster than the need for high school graduates.

Adults who have completed higher education are also much less likely to be unemployed, according to the report. While about 15 percent of high school graduates cannot find a job, this number is reduced to 7.5 percent for people who have finished some college. Individuals who decide to earn a bachelor's degree will have an even less chance of being unemployed, as only 4.5 percent of these people are not working.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that adults who have college credentials also have larger salaries. While high school graduates earn about $32,522 annually, a bachelor's degree can boost this salary to $53,976.
