College goals vary from person to person, but Bowling Green State University Firelands College offers outstanding educational opportunities for those who seek either an associate degree, bachelor’s degree, or the general education courses that will easily transfer to other institutions.  Starting your college career at BGSU Firelands has many benefits:


Cost effective.  Not only can students save money by avoiding the costs of campus housing at a larger residential college, but tuition at BGSU Firelands is half of the cost of most four-year institutions in Ohio. Full-time tuition at BGSU Firelands is only $2,465.40 per semester.

Increased earnings.  A college degree will improve lifetime earnings.  Lifetime earnings of individuals with an associate degree are on the average 33% higher than people with only a high school diploma.  Lifetime earnings of individuals with bachelor’s degrees are on the average 75% higher than people with only a high school diploma.

Increased employment opportunities too.  Recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics demonstrates that the unemployment rate for those with an associate degree is 27% lower than those with only a high school diploma.  Bachelor’s degree holders have an unemployment rate of 49% lower than those with only a high school diploma.
