Why is Graduation Important?

There are many good reasons to graduate. Perhaps the most important consideration is financial; every study about education and how it relates to income shows that there is a strong correlation between the level of your education and how much money you can earn once you are out of school. Employers also see dedication to finishing a degree as a good sign that you are a reliable potential employee, and a good investment. In short, college graduates are more employable and earn more money than non-graduates. Additionally, completing an undergraduate degree opens up opportunities for graduate study; and as you might suspect, having an advanced degree further enhances your earning potential. Setting aside tangible benefits, completing college and graduating with a degree allows you to work in a field that you love, and fills you with a sense of pride and accomplishment. You have come so far already, don't give up now!
