For JSU alumni, high SAT scores do not correlate to high-paying positions in the workforce. Former JSU graduates bring in $49K on average.


There is a sizable difference between women's post-college salaries and men's. The median for the former is $82K. By contrast, the median for the latter is only about $45K.

Degree Major

JSU students with a Bachelor's Degree can expect to make the most money ($57K on average per year) compared to their fellow graduates.


Competency in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) translates into above-average pay for former Gamecocks — they earn double their fellow graduates.

Experience with Acute Care, Bookkeeping, and Financial Reporting is highly valued as well.

Benefits and Perks

More than half of alumni report contributing to a 401(k). Health insurance benefits extend to the larger part of former students, and just over two-fifths of alums sign up for dental plans.
