So why transfer?

With a bachelor's degree, you will have more job opportunities and higher earnings. College graduates earn $1 million more over their lifetime than a high school graduate. A person with a bachelor's degree earns about $240 a week more than someone with an associate's degree. So, continuing your education beyond an associate's degree can help your earnings significantly! Get more information at Know How 2 Transfer.
