Obtaining a college education is no guarantee of achieving a successful career. However, it does provide the individual with a much better foundation for success. Most studies prove, on the average, the more education the higher the income. For many, a college education will be the most expensive service they will buy. CAREER PLANNERS can help students navigate higher education, a marketplace full of snares and illusions, with increased confidence and reduced costs.

One year of college can cost is over $20,000 and 4 years can easily exceed $100,000.
The best way to control college costs and achieve career dreams is to accurately connect career assessment with major and college decisons
