In Tennessee for instance, the average wage for graduates of community colleges is $38,948 -- more than $1,300 higher than the average salaries for graduates of the state's four-year institutions. In Virginia, recent graduates of occupational and technical degree programs at its community colleges make an average of $40,000. That's almost $2,500 more than recent bachelor's degree recipients.
