Is College worth the RISK?

College Graduation

61% of students change their Major in the second year.

Let’s face it, going to college is a ‘Big Risk’ these days.

Did you know that only 24% of students graduate in four years¹. With a whopping 61% of students changing their Major in the second year, adding another 1-2 years before they graduate².

That’s a staggering number considering every extra year costs $20,000 to $30,000¹.

As a teen going to college is going to be awesome but graduating on time, gaining your independence and your dream job should take 4 years and not dragged out any longer than necessary.

As a parent we naturally want to give them the best start in life possible.

It’s nearly like flipping a coin
