2012 ROI Rankings: College Education Value Compared
With all of the expense and time required to attend college, does earning a degree pay off long-term? Yes, depending on which school you choose. PayScale has ranked more than 850 U.S. colleges (for both in and out-of-state tuition when applicable) by their college tuition ROI - what you pay to attend versus what you get back in lifetime earnings.
* While PayScale relies upon tuition information from the Department of Education for all schools listed in the PayScale College ROI Rankings, this school has an uncommon cost structure that is not reflected in this publicly available source. Actual tuition paid by the majority of students at this school may be less than the figures used in this calculation. Please see the school's website for more details.
