There are many advantages to getting a college education. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2010 the unemployment rate was 9.2 percent for those with only some college and more than 10 percent for those with just a high school degree, but it was 5.4 percent for college graduates. College graduates may also make more money. The median weekly earnings for someone with some college but no degree were $712, compared to $1038 for a college graduate. That’s almost $17,000 over the course of a year and there is an even bigger divide for those with less education. Use this calculator to estimate the difference in earnings with a college degree.
