Tuition Cost Plays a Major Factor in Choosing a Technical Trade School Over a Traditional College

There are plenty of reasons for choosing to be educated at a technical trade school over a traditional college. One of the biggest reasons is the difference in tuition costs.

Cost of Tuition: Technical Trade School Degree vs. Bachelor’s Degree Cost

Cost of Degree without Financing

“The average trade school degree costs $33,000, which, compared to a $127,000 bachelor’s degree, means a savings of $94,000. But that’s not all!

Cost of Degree with Financing

If you assume that these students are fully financing their education with loans at 4% over ten years, the bachelor’s degree will cost $154,000, while the trade school degree will cost only $40,000. That’s a savings of $114,000 just on the degree.”
