As many college students get ready for their fall semesters to begin, they are left with the daunting prices of tuition that continue to climb every year. With the rise of college degrees among Americans, young students graduating from high school feel their only option is to continue their education by going to a public or private university and by doing so they are simultaneously taking on hefty tuition fees.
In most cases fees are paid for through student learns, which, in turn, are leaving them graduating with debt that far exceeds their “young professional” paycheck.
What seems to be a continuous rise in tuition fees leaves you wondering what other options do these young students have as they go into the next phase of their lives?
An option often overlooked is trade schools. Trade schools offer a variety of options geared to meet the demands of the professional market seeking skilled workers.
Individuals who enter these fields have a median starting entry pay of $60,000 while others studying liberal arts and communications at large-scale universities have an entry pay of $30,000-$40,000.
Tuition costs and median entry-level pay per profession leaves many young students wondering if going to a public or private university is still what was once seen as an investment.
