How to make a college education pay for itself
Will your children's college educations pay off student loans and lead to a comfortable life?
Do you and they look at college as an investment in their futures?
GradReports is offering information to consider in choosing a college, a field of study and a career.
GradReports recently launched Salary Scores, a powerful new college metric based on median alumni earnings in the year after graduating.
Using US Department of Education data, GradReports compared the salaries of over 4.6 million college graduates to determine Salary Scores for 2,200+ colleges and 334 majors.
Lexington County Chronicle readers will find these Salary Scores helpful as they compare area college choices.
The College Search tool on the GradReports.com home page lets prospective students and their families access more than 2,200 school profiles.
That includes Salary Scores by degree level and program. This gives an easy comparison of the earning power expected from one school vs. another.
For example, you can see how your local colleges stack up.
