The Benefits Of Going To College To Earn Your Degree As An Adult

Thursday, June 15, 2017

Our very own Dr. Alexis Stephens, Chancellor of MacCormac College, joined WGN news in the morning to discusses the advantages of going back to college and earning your degree even at an older age. Some of the benefits she discusses are:

  • Ability to advance within the job you already have
  • Increase your earning potential
  • Raising the bar for your kids
  • Being able to transition to a new career if you are not satisfied with where you are at 

Also, at some institutions, you can reduce your amount of time there by receiving credits for your life experience. Business degrees are the most commonly obtained degrees for older adult students going back to college.
