College is an expensive venture but something that is also needed. Whether it’s getting a 2-year degree, a 4-year degree or even going to a trade school, continuing your education after high school is important for you to do. Most of the jobs today require some type of degree to get your foot in the door. So it’s important to look at the opportunities that are available to you.

College Score Card is a website that is funded by the U.S. Department of Education. This website allows you to compare school for things such as major, locations and even the graduation rate and the average salary after attending that school.
