What we do
For students and parents: selecting a quality University is almost as difficult as getting into one, and it doesn’t help that the costs of attending college may not be worth the mountains of student loans that follow. PayScale has collected data from more than 1.4 million college alumni and developed several tools that help you to compare institutions of higher education without getting a migraine. Our yearly College Salary Report has data for more than 1,000 US colleges and 120 different majors. By looking at which institutions and degrees will get you the most for your money, you can make a more educated decision about which college is right for you. PayScale has ranked colleges and universities across the nation and calculated the potential financial return of attending each school given the cost of tuition and the payoff in median lifetime earnings associated with each school.
For institutions: Attracting students means creating a compelling experience. PayScale’s cloud software and benchmark data will help you attract and retain faculty, support staff and administrators to create that experience.
