The average price of tuition for a four-year college degree more than doubled in the past twenty years, according to data from the National Center of Education Statistics. Today, there are more ways than ever to avoid student loan debt while pursuing a flourishing career path that doesn’t require a bachelor’s degree at all, such as:
- Earning money while you learn a trade through a paid apprenticeship.
- Beginning job training in high school through career and technical education programs.
- Pursuing shorter credentialing options at any point in your career.
