Deciding to earn your degree can be challenging. It requires commitment, time, and energy. But for your future, the positive benefits of obtaining your degree outweigh the challenges.
The motivation for attending college is undoubtedly different for everyone and, most of the time, having a degree can provide advantages that are well worth your efforts in the long run.
So what's motivating you?
Do you believe that earning your bachelor's degree will create more employment opportunities? You're right; it will. For decades, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data has shown that workers with a bachelor's degree have lower unemployment rates and higher earnings than workers with less education.
Do you crave more financial stability? While no degree can guarantee you more money, employees with a bachelor's degree earn an average of 36% more than those with an associate's degree, and 64% more than those with a high school diploma, according to the BLS. An employee with a bachelor's degree is likelier to have more promotion opportunitiesthan an employee with an associate's degree as well.
Are you just wanting to achieve your personal goals? Careers are great, but knowing that you did something, learned something, and grew as a person is a great reason to earn your degree as well. Maybe it's been a few years and you want to prove to yourself you can finish, or maybe you want to be a role model for your kids, but earning an online bachelor's degree from a state university is something everyone can respect.
