Finishing my degree at Charter Oak State College was the most amazing experience. From the initial enrollment meeting, the application process, to the final degree, I was guided step by step. The advisors were hands on and attentive, always willing to answer my questions. Without the ability to complete my education online I would never have completed my Bachelor’s degree. As a single parent working a full time job this program helped me to be able to accomplish the goals I set for myself.
Bachelor’s degree holders make $1 million more on average over their lifetime compared to their peers who have only a high school degree.*
Employees with a bachelor’s degree now make up 57 percent of total wages earned. **
