What is ROI?

ROI, or Return on Investment, helps you see just how much continuing your education after high school might pay off for you, your family, and Texas! LaunchMyCareerTX's ROI tools, supported by USA Funds, estimate how much you can expect to earn over the next 20 years if you finish a college degree, compared to someone who doesn't continue their education past college. It can even help you compare the ROI across majors and colleges, helping you find YOUR best course!

By 2020, three out of four jobs in Texas will require education after high school, from certificates that can be completed in less than a year to four-year degrees. But going to college is more than just a pathway to a good career and higher earnings! People who continue their education after high school report better health and more involvement in their community than those who don't. There's never been a more important time to invest in yourself. Start planning your college journey today!
