      Your College Comparison:

      In judging the return on investment for your degree, there’s more than one measure to consider. Here’s the complete picture for the colleges you’ve listed.

      Average Net Price

      What Is It?

      Few students pay the advertised tuition figure, known as the sticker price. Net price is what you’ll actually pay for college, after subtracting scholarships and grants.   

      Why It Matters

      A high sticker price can scare students away from a specific college even though it might be a good fit for them. Look at net price, not the sticker price.

      Graduation Rate

      What Is It?

      The graduation rate measures the percentage of full-time students who’d never enrolled in college before and completed a degree in the time listed.

      Why It Matters

      A college might give you lots of financial aid or offer the major you want, but if you don’t graduate, or it takes you 10 years to earn a degree, that might not be a good deal.

      Debt Repayment & Earnings

      What Is It?

      Not all families need loans for college. For those that do, here is what the monthly payments might look like over 10 years compared with the graduate's average earnings.

      Why It Matters

      Earnings are only one measure of the value of a degree, but they are an important one if you’re planning to borrow much more than the average student does.
