UMD Ranked Top College for Return on Investment
Duluth, MN- The University of Minnesota Duluth has been listed as one of the most affordable Minnesota colleges by The College Database, a website dedicated to providing accurate and valuable college and career information.
To be included in this list, schools must have an annual tuition rate below $20,000 and have new graduates who earn more than $40,000 per year on average. According to The College Database, UMD students enter the workforce earning an estimated $42,300 per year after graduation, ranking it among the top five of all Minnesota post-secondary schools.
"We are pleased that the value of a UMD education is getting recognized in this way. Paying for college is still a significant challenge for many families, and we remain committed to providing a high return on this important investment," said Lendley "Lynn" Black, UMD Chancellor.
The College Database uses data from the federal government and the Carnegie Foundation.
