Millions with college credit contemplate degree completion (Infographic)

According to the Pew Research Center, college graduates earn approximately $17,500 more than adults without a degree, and they are more likely to be employed than their less-educated counterparts.[i] Despite these advantages, more than 31 million people started college in the last 20 years, but did not graduate. Family or personal responsibilities and military service are just some of the reasons students “opt out” of their education. As the value of a college degree continues to rise, for adults planning to complete their degree, there’s no time quite like the present.
