How much can a bachelor's degree raise my income?

The College Board's Education Pays 2013 report found that the median earnings of bachelor's degree recipients working full-time year-round in 2011 were $56,500, $21,100 more than the median earnings of high school graduates. The study also found that, during a 40-year working life, the typical bachelor's degree recipient without an advanced degree can expect median earnings that are 65% higher than the median earnings of high school graduates over the same period.
