Abstract: Although the benefits derived from an educational investment have long been thought to be positive, only in recent years have attempts been made to evaluate these benefits. The need for quantitative measures of the return derived from investments in human capital have become increasingly important as the public requires greater accountability for its educational expenditures. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the pecuniary benefits accruing to the individual as a result of investments in education at the community college and technical institute level, especially in regard to Surry Community College. The study design focused on five major objectives: (1) to determine the scope and type of formal educational activities that have taken place after completion of the technical-vocational program at Surry Community College; (2) to determine if students moved to the Surry Community College area in order to enroll in a particular technical-vocational curriculum; (3) to determine if students moved from the Surry Community College area after attaining a degree in the technica1-vocational curriculum at Surry Community College; (4) to describe the economic status of graduates of technical-vocational programs as revealed by the graduates; and (5) to determine the academic success after transfer of college parallel students.
