Description

The site, collegescorecard.ed.gov, can tell you a lot about a school – from its graduation rate and the earnings of former students, to how much debt you can expect to take on. The site has been recently updated by the U.S. Department of Education, adding new data, details and restoring a few statistics that the Trump administration had scrapped. The updated scorecard lets you compare schools based on graduates' earnings, then see how those earnings compare to workers without a degree. It even shows how well a school serves its low-income students.
