High return on college education:
The California Community Colleges is the largest provider of workforce training in the state and nation.
For every $1 California invests in students who graduate from college, it will receive a net return on investment of $4.50.
Californians with a college degree will earn $1,340,000 more than their peers with only a high school diploma. Students who earn a degree or certificate from a California community college nearly double their earnings within three years.
Attending or graduating from a community college doubles an individual’s chance of finding a job compared to those who failed to complete high school.
The California Community Colleges is the state’s most cost-effective system of education – the revenue needed to support one full-time community college student is slightly more than $5,000 per year.
