Hi Brenda,

Ultimately it depends on what college you choose.  According to the College Board, the average cost of tuition and fees for the 2017–2018 school year was $34,740 at private colleges, $9,970 for state residents at public colleges, and $25,620 for out-of-state residents attending public universities.  You will likely have more debt if you choose a more expensive college.

An education and degree are far more valuable to a company and to your career growth than which college you attend (although select a university with a higher graduation rate).
