It depends where you live and where you get your CS degree. There are countries where degree is valued and it would be nice to have. Other countries just look for experience and skill and if you don't have what the company needs it doesn't matter if you have 10 CS degrees. Also colleges that have low funding are usually struggling to stay on top of new developments in the industry since technology is moving incredibly fast, so if you get a degree there you would get some all round CS skills but not enough to actually land a decent job. So before deciding do a little research or ask for advice from someone with experience from your area.
