Unfortunately, former FAMU students — a population with excellent SAT results — report salaries on the lower end of the pay scale. Graduates of FAMU earn around $49K on average.


FAMU students enjoy their time in Tallahassee, and over a third of students actually choose to live and work there after graduating.

Degree Major

Financial compensation is highest for FAMU grads with a Bachelor's Degree (average earnings climb to $61K per year). Graduates holding a Bachelor of Science in Bachelor of Science (BS / BSc) fare the worst in terms of compensation with an average yearly salary of approximately $58K.


Many former FAMU students are familiar with Customer Service, and slightly less than a third of grads move on to positions where this experience is utilized. For former Rattlers, proficiency in Project Management warrants a paycheck that is 64 percent more than other alumni salaries. Project Management, Microsoft Office, and Office Administration are desirable skills as well.

Benefits and Perks

Paid vacation days are a given for most respondents, but only two-fifths of alumni are rewarded with paid sick leave. It is no small feat that more than half of grads are given health coverage, and the larger part of respondents accept dental insurance. In an effort to save up for the years ahead, a majority of the survey participants contribute to a 401(k). Graduates of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University are also recipients of tuition reimbursement, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and company pension plan.

Related Schools

Median pay for Texas a & M University grads is $51K, making their salaries most similar to those of FAMU grads. Other schools similar to FAMU include the University of West Florida, Georgia Southern University, and Lamar University.
