    The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) states that rates of unemployment are about 50% less for those with a four-year degree as compared with high school graduates 25 years of age and older. 

     Those with bachelor's degrees can expect to earn an average of $1 million more over their lifetimes than those with a high school diploma (US Census Bureau, Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities) 

     As documented in the Chronicle of Higher Education, many employers continue to consider a college degree a critical credential for hiring. Burning Glass, a company that analyzes job ads, documented in a 2014 report that "employers in many fields are requiring a bachelor's degree for jobs that previously didn't need them" (When a Degree is Just the Beginning, September 14, 2015).
