Graduates of the USA work in a variety of sectors including the engineering services industry, the health care information technology (it) services industry, and the medical office industry. The most highly represented industry among alumni is clinical care. Graduates of the USA earn around $60K on average.


After graduation, women go on to earn an average of $50K per year compared to men, who earn $74K.


More often than not, USA grads continue living in Mobile, Ala. (just over two-fifths of former students to be exact) even though the average salary here takes last place on the pay scale ($51K). Alternatively, Tampa, Fla. is home to some of the highest salaries — median pay is approximately $88K — which is an (obvious) draw for many USA grads.

Degree Major

USA students with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) can expect to make the most money (about $125K on average per year) compared to their fellow graduates. A B.A. in Bachelor of Arts (BA) offers the lowest median annual financial reward ($71K).


Nearly one in four grads report using Project Management as part of their job, making it the most popular skill. Competency in Project Management translates into above-average pay for former Jaguars — they earn double their fellow graduates. Microsoft Office, Obstetrics, and Data Analysis are desirable skills as well.

Benefits and Perks

Only two-fifths of alumni for this school enjoy paid vacation days and about one-sixth of alumni get paid sick time. It is no small feat that a large number of former students are given health coverage, and a strong majority of respondents accept dental insurance. A large number of respondents allocate some part of their earnings to a company-sponsored 401(k) savings plan. University of South Alabama graduates also take advantage of life insurance, free drinks, and flexible hours.

Related Schools

Median pay for University of Texas at El Paso grads is $61K, making their salaries most similar to those of USA grads. Other schools similar to USA include the University of New Orleans, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and Jackson State University.
