UMD Among "Best Lifetime Return on Investment"

According to AffordableCollegesOnline.org

UMD has one of the best lifetime returns on investment, according to AffordableCollegesOnline.org, a resource for college affordability. It found that UMD grads are among the most likely to have the largest earnings gap between non-degree holders over 30 years and earn more on average than graduates from many other peer schools. AC Online analyzed 145 colleges in Minnesota and named UMD as one of the top three public institutions and seventh overall.

"We are dedicated to providing quality education that prepares students for meaningful careers and are proud that UMD is being recognized for accomplishing this," said Lendley "Lynn" Black, UMD Chancellor.

AC Online developed the following criteria for consideration as a "High ROI College:"
   -    Fully accredited institution
-    Either public or private
-    Four-year, degree-granting institution
-    ROI according to PayScale's 2013 College Value Report
