Location: Richmond, Indiana
Earlham College is definitely not cheap to attend. In fact, it costs over $46,000 per year for the privilege of learning within the walls of this Midwestern school.
Except when you compare the cost with the median 10-year earnings of just $35,000, it seems like it’s best to keep searching.
St. Lawrence University
Location: Canton, New York
St. Lawrence costs almost $55,000 per year to attend, but ten years after enrollment, students only earn an average salary of around $50,000.
Those numbers seem less than ideal.
Harris-Stowe State University
Location: St. Louis, Missouri
This public university in St. Louis has a graduation rate that makes 30% look like 90%. A mere 8% of students make it all the way through the programs. Considering they had nearly 1,500 undergrads in the 2016-2017 school year, which means only about 120 students out of over 1,500 graduates.
They also have one of the worst median salaries for alumni – less than $27,000 after six years. What is going on at Harris-Stowe State?
St. Andrews University
Location: Laurinburg, North Carolina
St. Andrews could be worse, but they’ve also got some issues they need to address, which is mainly their cost of tuition versus the number of debt graduates are left with.
That’s what happens when you spend more than $41,000 per year to earn a degree.
Location: Cazenovia, New York
This school in New York serves an undergraduate population of nearly 1,000 students, many of whom will see a lackluster ROI.
Cazenovia costs $46,000 per year to attend, which translates to massive amounts of debt.
