16 High-Paying Jobs You Can Get With a 2-Year Degree

You can find a career with a good salary — without having to earn a bachelor's degree. If you could spend as much as $27,000 a year at a public university or less than $4,000 a year at a community college, which experience would you choose? What if we said you could get a job with a six-digit income and have financial stability with a degree from the cheaper school? Earning a bachelor’s degree seems like the all-American way to get a college education. But there are degrees that take less time and a lot less money that still can net you a good-paying job. Consider this: The College Board says that, for the 2020-2021 school year, in-state tuition and fees at a four-year public school set you back an average of $10,560 — or, $27,020 if you paid out-of-state tuition and fees. In contrast, in 2020-2021, the average in-district tuition and fees at public two-year colleges ranged from $1,430 in California to $8,600 in Vermont. That makes public two-year institutions with degrees that lead to good-paying jobs look like a great bargain when tuition and fees average $3,770 a year.
