Many people go to college for one degree, work for a few years, then go back to college to get a higher degree or specialized certification in their field, or get a degree in a new field so they can change careers.
Some degrees don’t draw a straight line to specific careers. This can be good for graduates -- if you do your homework, you might find you have more career options than you knew.
Depending on who you ask, between 25% and 37% of college students transfer to a different school at some point before graduation.
A college degree or certification is a minimum requirement for most well-paying jobs, especially office jobs.
Colleges and universities offer a wide-range of undergraduate and graduate degrees.
