I'm curious to see if some of these ridiculous tuition I see sometimes are worth it.
The school I'll be going to next fall is about 2000(sometimes up to 2500) each semester.
2 year degrees(A few are one).
So probably in the end just to round up 10,000 total.
I'm going for graphic design and photography. The degree is Graphic Design and the photography is just extra after.
And lastly, I expect to make around 30,000 a year. Which is plenty to me.

My credits are $250 a piece. If I do 15 credits a semester it comes out to $3,750. I need 122 credits to graduate for a total of $30,500. I am going for a Bachelors in Emergency and Disaster Management. As of right now it doesn't seem like it will directly pertain to my career. I leaning towards 2 things. Also if and when I get a full time with the county they will pay 80% of my tuition as of now I only have a seasonal job.
One being a corrections officer not something I would love to do but the pay is great and being I work for the county once a position opens up in the county jail I'm pretty much set. That could happen before I finish college which will be like 2 years. Pays about 75k a year starting before overtime which you usually get a lot of. People call out, a jail can't be shorthanded.
Second being a police officer. This is what I want to do. I want to get a job in the county sheriff's department ultimately in their K9 unit. Again being a county job and knowing who I know this shouldn't be too difficult. Pays about the same. Probably could go to the academy on an associates but I'll be getting a bachelors.
I agree with it being ridiculous what some people are paying in tuition. A degree is a degree to me.
