Alaska was the 49th state to be added to the United states and is known as “The Last Frontier.” The snowy state – by far the largest and least-densely populated in the country – is more famous for The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race from Anchorage to Nome than it is for its colleges. But Alaska is home to a handful of schools in PayScale’s College Salary Report undergraduate college rankings. To find the best college by alumni salary, we compare both the early career salaries – based on working alumni with zero to five years of experience – and the mid-career salaries – based on working alumni with 10 or more years of experience.
