Do I really need a college degree?Yes! According to a recent report, by the year 2018, 66% of all jobs in Utah will require postsecondary education. Currently, only 39% of Utahns hold an associates degree or higher. In our very near future, those without postsecondary education will no longer be able to compete in the increasingly knowledge-based workforce.

The benefits of a college education reach far beyond potential earnings and hireability. College graduates also experience a myriad of health and societal benefits. And, the benefits derived from a college education extend beyond the individual to their children and to the communities where they live and work. Learn the benefits of a college education.
