Fed researchers said. The value of a bachelor's degree is $275,000, on average. That's near its all-time peak. And it takes about 10 years to recoup the costs of a bachelor's degree.
But if you take longer than four years to graduate, it will cost you. Staying one extra year will lower your lifetime earnings by $85,000. Taking two additional years will subtract $174,000 in earnings.
The Fed's research, however, doesn't take into account student loan debt. How one pays for college doesn't affect its value.

Was it last yr or yr before studies were proclaiming a Bachelor's degree value was 1 million dollars. So did a Bachelor's degree's value declined in the past two years by approx $700k over working career?
