Baker College in Flint, Michigan is in the midst of shutting down. By August of 2020, the Flint Township campus will close – although they’re just consolidating and moving to Owosso. It’s no secret that the people living in Flint have dealt with their fair share of (serious) problems over the past several years, which continues to this day.
Aside from the obvious issues, local grads are dealing with more than $22,000 in debt and struggling to pay it, thanks to an average salary of just over $27,000.
Long Island University
Location: Brooklyn, New York
This university has an acceptance rate of 88%, which makes the 32% graduation rate look even lower than it is.
They have also faced scrutiny more than once for their policies that restrict free speech.
Location: Gambier, Ohio
Kenyon College in Ohio has some good things going for it, including its high graduation rate of nearly 90%.
Students pay a pretty penny every year to attend the Midwestern school, however – almost $56,000. But that number looks even worse if you compare it to the median ten-year salary of $48,700.
Location: St. Petersburg, Florida
Although they’re located in a gorgeous area, this is another school that has an ROI that’s just plain bad.
Why would anyone want to spend $44, 540 per year to make $42,200 in the future? If you’re considering Eckerd, you may want to rethink your options.
Montana State University Billings
Location: Billings, Montana
After reading about some of the previous schools on this list, Montana State University Billings’ graduation rate of 28% doesn’t seem all too bad, does it? But in the grand scheme of things and on a list of all of the schools in the nation, it’s still pretty lousy.
Students will graduate with an average debt of over $22,000 and make a salary of less than $35,000 more than six years after entry. It’s probably best to keep searching for a better school.
