Salaries are quite modest for FAMU alumni, inconsistent with the impressive SAT results reported by this group. Former FAMU graduates bring in around $49K on average.


Upon earning their degrees, many FAMU grads prefer to remain in Tallahassee; in fact, over a third of grads appreciate the area so much that they find permanent jobs there.

Degree Major

A Bachelor's Degree earns FAMU students the most money after college (an average about $61K per year). A Bachelor of Science in Bachelor of Science (BS / BSc) commands less pay, and these degree-holders face median pay of $58K.


FAMU alumni are often well versed in Customer Service, with just under a third of grads ending up in jobs that require this skillset. For former Rattlers, proficiency in Project Management warrants a paycheck that is 64 percent more than other alumni salaries. Proficiency in Project Management, Microsoft Office, and Office Administration command top-of-the-line rewards as well.

Benefits and Perks

Benefits include paid time off, but vacation days are more heavily handed out than sick days; most former students report receiving the former, but only two-fifths of alumni report receiving the latter. Health coverage is awarded to more than half of alums, and dental insurance is issued to a majority of respondents as well. More than half of grads take advantage of a 401(k) plan. Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University alumni are rewarded with additional benefits, such as tuition reimbursement, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and company pension plan.

Related Schools

Median pay for Texas a & M University grads is $51K, making their salaries most similar to those of FAMU grads. Other schools similar to FAMU include the University of West Florida, Georgia Southern University, and Lamar University.
