USA Higher Education is a solid investment

The value of a diploma from a U. S. University is still solid gold. The U. S. News and World Report confirmed that the average holder of a bachelor’s degree earns $51,000 dollars per year, those who continued with their education and earned professional degrees are currently earning an average of $100,000 dollars per year. That is an outstanding return on your investment.

Green River is an excellent U. S. Community College to begin your studies:

  • A BA degree for ½ the cost -significant savings in tuition fees
  • Your own educational advisor to help with transfer to a university
