Finding the Right College or University for You
In September 2015, The U.S. Department of Education released the College Scorecard website, an online college ratings system. The site provides information to users about institutions’ annual cost of tuition, graduation rates and median earnings of graduates 10 years after completing their studies, as well as more granular data regarding the percentage of students receiving federal loans and need-based aid (Pell grants). The site was designed to assist students in selecting post-secondary education options that will prepare them for their careers while avoiding the pitfalls of student loan debt and under performing institutions. https://collegescorecard.ed.gov/
