Burlington County College graduates can expect to make an additional $6 in earnings over 30 years for every dollar they invest in their education, according to a recent study released by the college.

The college graduates get jobs, pay taxes, and use their income to purchase things such as homes, college President Robert Messina said. In addition the college helps to reduce unemployment and crime rates, he said.

Because of that, the study found that the state and county get back $23.60 on every dollar they invest at the college.
