Educational devaluation is the process whereby educational degrees, for sociological and occupational purposes, become less valuable over time.

In the United States, most educational degrees are considered to have devalued by about four years since the turn of the 20th century. For example, a high school degree once sufficed for entrance into a middle-class occupational field; now, a college degree is practically required.
