A credit to the quality of a USciences education, the University’s students have a proven track record of graduating on time, landing jobs in their fields, paying back their college loans, and earning top dollar during their careers.

Among nearly 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S., USciences is seventh in the nation for salary after graduation, holding the same position from last year’s list. In addition, graduates remain the highest earners on average among those from institutions in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, and third highest in the Mid-Atlantic Region

The scorecard ranking shows that, on average, USciences alumni earned more than graduates of such schools as Harvard University, Georgetown University, Stanford University and Yale University.

Data on former students’ salaries were available for 3,983 institutions across the United States, including 293 in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware and 617 institutions in the Mid-Atlantic Region, when eliminating those institutions for which salary information is not provided. The data were based on federal tax records of students who had received a federal loan or grant, regardless of whether they graduated.

The College Scorecard database, which includes data from 1996 through 2016, gives families access to the most complete and unbiased data regarding the costs and benefits of higher education institutions throughout the country. The tool was developed by the U.S. Department of Education in 2015 as a unique and trusted tool for families to use as they compare colleges and universities across the nation.

5 Thomas Jefferson University, PA $87,400

The data sources include annual surveys which all institutions are required to submit to the federal government. Users can sort schools by their students’ median earnings, the average annual cost, and graduation rates. The scorecards are meant to provide students, families, and their advisers with a truer picture on college cost and value.

And now, in fall 2018, with lower tuition through a tuition reset for incoming undergraduate students, and freeze for current and graduate students, students and their families will have price transparency. In addition to knowing the proven results of attending USciences, they will also know the cost of attending before they even apply.
