The engineering services industry, the health care information technology (it) services industry, and the medical office industry are just a few of the areas in which the USA grads find work. Clinical care is the sector most highly represented among alumni. Following graduation, USA students earn an average of $64K.


There's a noticeable difference between the genders; where the average man hauls in about $76K after graduating from USA, the average woman earns only approximately $51K.


More often than not, USA grads continue living in Mobile, Ala. (roughly two-fifths of former students to be exact) even though the average salary here takes last place on the pay scale (around $51K). On the other hand, USA alumni seeking the highest salaries end up in Tampa, Fla., which offers a median salary of $88K.

Degree Major

USA grads who hold a Master of Business Administration (MBA) can expect to fare better than most fellow alumni, earning an average $125K per year. The degree that warrants the lowest level of financial compensation is a B.A. in Bachelor of Arts (BA) ($71K on average annually).


Competency in Project Management translates into above-average pay for former Jaguars — they earn nearly double their fellow graduates. Project Management is a popular skill among USA alumni, with about a fourth of workers reporting using it on the job. In addition, those who are savvy in Microsoft Office, People Management, and Construction Estimating are also considered highly skilled.

Benefits and Perks

Just under half of the former students do get paid time off for vacation, but only about one in five survey participants get paid sick time. A large number of alums set up a 401(k) to save for retirement. It is no small feat that a large number of respondents are given health coverage, and a fair number of former students accept dental insurance. Graduates of University of South Alabama are also recipients of life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, free drinks, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

University of New Orleans grads report the most similar salaries to USA alums, earning $62K on average. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Jackson State University, and Louisiana Tech University are also similar to USA.
