Aggie Capstone Graduation Challenge (ACGC) is a program for students who have achieved senior level status at the NMSU main campus (94 or more credits), did not complete a bachelor’s degree before stopping-out for at least one semester, and would like to return to NMSU with the goal of graduating.

The difference in work-life earnings between workers with high school diploma and those with a college degree is about $1 million. How far one goes in school can mean a difference of about $3.2 million. Even within one level of attainment—the bachelor’s degree—what one chooses to study in college and the careers pursued after college can also mean a difference of $2.8 million.

 Work-Life Earnings by Field of Degree and Occupation for People with a Bachelors Degree: 2011
