40 million people in the U.S. started college but never finished.

Today there are more than 40 million people in the United States that started college but never finished. What a waste of time, energy and money.

Studies show that people with a bachelor’s degree earn on average $1.2 million more than those with a high school degree over the course of their lives. That is why #UoPeople is committed to making it easier and more affordable for people to transfer their credits and finally earn their college degree.

April is Community College Month and UoPeople is waiving transfer course fees for all U.S. students who apply this month.

UoPeople’s degree programs are online and asynchronous, so students are able to take classes whenever and wherever they want – helping them to easily juggle work and family responsibilities.

If you know someone who never completed their college degree, please like this video and share it with them.Wherever you are in the world, if this is your wakeup or stay awake cup, take a minute to share #CoffeeWithShai.
