UCSD AMONG TOP PUBLIC COLLEGES THAT PAY OFF IN HIGHER EARNINGS
 
The University of California San Diego has been ranked the 11th best public university in the country among colleges that pay off the most in a new ranking by CNBC. The rankings measured UC San Diego’s costs, financial aid packages and the earnings for alumni at the start of their career ($61,300), as well as the mid-point ($94,050) and after they have been in the workforce for more than ten years ($126,800).


The CNBC ranking methodology calculated college costs after subtracting scholarships and grants for median U.S. households (families making between $48,001 and $75,000, an income range established by the Department of Education). The rankings also utilized data from the Payscale College Salary Report for alumni ranging from those with less than five years of experience, to those with more than ten years of experience. The ranking gives greater weight to workers’ earnings in the years immediately after college, when individuals are the most impacted by college costs and student debt.

Campus tops other best value rankings lists

Nearly 70 percent of all UC San Diego students receive some form of financial aid, with the median debt of the college’s graduates below the national average. These factors, combined with high earnings among alumni, have netted UC San Diego similar accolades to the CNBC rankings. In May, the campus was included in Forbes Best Value Colleges list as one of the top 15 universities, and Money Magazine recently rated UC San Diego the nation’s 6th best in the publication’s list of top colleges for transfer students.
