Are You a Student?

A well-paid, rewarding career doesn’t always require a four-year degree.

69% of students from the Class of 2018 took out student loans, graduating with an average debt balance of $29,800.

With accessible training programs throughout the state, skilled trade workers can earn a competitive salary with stable benefits without worrying about student loans. In fact, through many apprenticeships you can earn a paycheck during your training right out of high school.
