A Great

A Great
Return on
Investment for
Students who earn a one-year certificate from a community college earn as much as 16 percent more than
people with only a high school diploma or GED.
Students who enroll part-time at a community college
can expect to earn about $500 more per year for each
community college course they complete.
For every $1 a student spends on a community college
education, his/her discounted lifetime earnings will
increase $7.91.
Students recover all costs, including wages forgone
while attending a community college, within six years.
Earnings / Year
For every $1 invested in New Jersey’s community
colleges, over $18 dollars in overall benefits are
returned throughout the state – an impressive 18-to-1
benefits-to-cost ratio.
The rate of return on tax money invested in
community colleges is an impressive 14 percent.
State and county governments actually make
money from investing in community colleges.
People with a community college education are less
likely to smoke, drink, draw welfare or unemployment
benefits or commit crimes. Their added skills translate
into higher earnings, increased tax receipts, fewer social
services and a more robust
state economy.
State and local government support for New
Jersey’s community colleges is fully recovered in
9.2 years, in the form of higher tax receipts from
increased student wages and avoided costs from
reduced public expenditures.
A Great
Return for
the State’s
Students who complete an associate degree will earn
nearly $400,000 more in additional lifetime income
over the course of their careers. This is 37 percent
more than people with only a high school diploma
or GED.
