A college degree can pay off anywhere, but for Delaware residents, earning a degree can mean better job prospects as well. The Delaware Department of Labor projects that 43 percent of new jobs created between 2008 and 2018 are expected to require a college degree or formal vocational training, and more than 75 percent of the jobs that fall in the top two wage categories require post-secondary education or work experience in a related field.

Nationwide, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that high school graduates earned a median weekly income of $668 and experienced an unemployment rate of 6.0 percent in 2014, while those with a bachelor's degree earned a median weekly income of $1,101 and experienced an unemployment rate of 3.5 percent.

Higher Education in Delaware

Delaware is recovering from the recent recession better than many states. The BLS reports that the unemployment rate as of March 2015 was 4.6 percent, well below the national unemployment rate of 5.5 percent, and Delaware's higher education system has so far avoided significant budget cuts from the state government. The National Conference of State Legislatures reports that in the fiscal year 2009, Delaware was one of the few states that didn't reduce its contributions to higher education at all, and in 2010, the state's higher education appropriations were reduced by only 0.5 percent. But despite consistent support from the state, the Delaware Department of Education reported a $9,830 affordability gap in Delaware in 2009, the largest gap between the cost of education and the means of students among the 16 states that make up the Southern Regional Education Board. The cost of paying for an education means that for many students, it is essential to work while going to college. A 2006 study by the American Council on Education found that 78 percent of college undergraduates were working while in school, averaging about 30 hours a week at their jobs--statistics that have changed little since the government began tracking that data in the 1990s. For working students in Delaware, online degree programs allow a flexible schedule that can be easier to coordinate with a job and other commitments. Whether you choose to study at Delaware online schools or attend a national online school, there are a variety of degree programs you can choose from. Delaware online degrees are available at all degree levels, from certificate to doctorate, and in fields ranging from health care to business management to marketing.
