Choosing A Career College Over University

There comes a point in everyone’s life where we need to take the next step toward our future. For some people, the next step is to go to a university and get their degree. But this isn’t always the case for everybody. In fact, some realize that a university just isn’t right for them—sometimes a little too late. That doesn’t mean that it’s time to give up, though. Often, they just need to look for alternatives in education. It requires taking a long, hard look at the type of career you want. Ask yourself questions like these:

  • Are you looking for a purpose in your future? 
  • Do you want to make a definite impact on people’s lives?
  • Are you ready to prove you have the skills it takes to have a successful career? 

If you answered yes to any of those, then a career college might be that important next step. You can also take our Career Readiness Quiz to know for sure!  Read on to discover why a career college like Delta College might be a better choice for you than a university!

Saving Time

One of the downsides of a university is the amount of time you spend studying for your degree! Most individuals spend around four or more years learning in their major. On the other hand, some of our programs at Delta College can be completed in as little as 7.5 months. Let’s look at the details.

Even our longest program is half the time of a four-year university program. Are you ready to begin your training at Delta College? 

Saving Money Now and in the Future

When you choose to go to a university, there’s a pretty big possibility that you can really rack up student debt. The average cost of attendance at an in-state public university is around $9,000 a year. Out of state tuition is around $25,000 a year. Those are average costs, so there’s a large possibility of greater fees, especially for private universities.

The tuition for our school is thousands of dollars less. This can be attributed to the shorter amount of time you’ll spend in school. Because you’ll be out of school faster, you can also begin making money sooner. And because you’re making money sooner, any student loans that you’ve taken out can be paid off quicker as well.
