Economic Success Measures

Earning a credential is a large and valuable investment of time and effort. Paying for college is likewise a significant financial investment. Despite the choice of major being a personal decision, information about earnings upon graduation can provide informed and realistic preparation and expectations. It is important to note that the earnings of graduates of any program reflect a variety of factors independent of their educational experience, such as the students’ background, the local job market, and more. Nonetheless, these data can play an important role for students, parents, and policymakers.
