Living on a campus and earning a bachelor’s degree seems like the all-American way to get a college education. But maybe you’d like to save yourself some time, avoid a lot of debt and jump into the workforce sooner.

What if we said you could earn a six-digit income with a two-year degree, at a deep discount on school?

According to College Board statistics, a public university cost an average of $20,770 for the 2017-2018 school year, including tuition and room and board, and a private nonprofit school average cost a whopping $46,950 per year. But attending a local community college (assuming you live at home) costs an average of $3,570.

And, with a two-year degree or technical education, you could land one of these high-paying jobs.
