Graduates of the USA go into the engineering services industry, the health care information technology (it) services industry, and the medical office industry, not to mention a variety of other lines of work. Clinical care is the sector most highly represented among alumni. Those with a degree from the USA make an average of $64K.


After graduation, disparities in salary rise to the surface — males earn an average $76K per year compared to females' approximately $51K.


Though Mobile, Ala. offers the least in terms of financial rewards (median pay is the lowest at about $51K), around two in five USA students continue living here after college. USA grads with a different agenda may consider the above-average salaries in Tampa, Fla. — pay averages to $88K.

Degree Major

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) leads to the highest pay for USA grads ($125K on average per year). The degree that warrants the lowest level of financial compensation is a B.A. in Bachelor of Arts (BA) (around $71K on average annually).


Competency in Project Management translates into above-average pay for former Jaguars — they earn nearly double their fellow graduates. Proficiency in Project Management is common among USA alumni, and when it comes to using it on the job, nearly one-fourth of former students report doing so. Microsoft Office, Acute Care, and Construction Estimating are among other dominant skills.

Benefits and Perks

Though a little less than half of the former students get paid time off for vacation, only one in five survey participants receive paid sick leave. Dental insurance applies to a fair number of graduates, and a large number of former students report health coverage. A large number of alums report contributing to a 401(k). University of South Alabama graduates also take advantage of life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, free drinks, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Compensation averages $63K for University of Texas at El Paso alumni, making their earnings most comparable to USA grads. The University of New Orleans, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and Jackson State University are also similar to USA.
