Turn Your Diploma into an Associate Degree!
Are you looking to advance in your career? If you have not been visiting friends, shopping, going to the movies, or getting out as much lately, you could fill that time by furthering your education and reaching your professional goals. Why not turn the diploma you've worked so hard to earn into an associate degree?
Employers often prefer candidates with more completed education. In 2019, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a lower unemployment rate for those who had completed an associate degree program than for students who had never completed their four-year college degree programs.1 Additionally, those with an associate degree had an unemployment rate of only 2.7% compared to 3.7% (for those with a high school diploma) or 5.4% (for those with less than a high school diploma).1 Studying beyond the diploma level could help you prove to employers that you have the drive and knowledge to succeed.
Rockford Career College offers associate degrees in animal welfare business management, business administration, construction management, healthcare administration, and paralegal studies. All of these programs are held entirely online and, as long as you have your diploma, could be completed in as little as seven months! If you have not yet earned your diploma, we also have a number of diploma programs to fit your academic needs.
Now's a great time to earn your degree online. Registration, financial aid assistance, and new student orientation are also available online, so you could complete the entire process from the comfort of your home. If you have had more free time on your hands lately, this could be a great opportunity for you to move ahead in your career without distractions.
Why wait? Taking the first step today could change your professional future.
