A person with an AA degree earns an average of $340,000 more during their career than a person with only a high school degree. Additionally, people with certificates earn, on average, 20 percent more than workers with only high school diplomas. They also can out-earn workers with two-year and four-year degrees. LAVC offers over 50 degrees in an attractive and accessible learning environment that fosters student success.
