Location: Galesburg, Illinois Knox
College costs nearly $47,000 per year to attend, but 10 years after entry, grads don’t even average a $40,000/year salary.
What gives, Knox College?
Ohio Wesleyan University
Location: Delaware, Ohio
Ohio Wesleyan doesn’t exactly seem like the optimal place to earn your higher education.
Mainly because the yearly tuition of $45,670 and the ten-year average earnings of $45,300 don’t add up at all.
Location: Unity, Maine
Students at Unity College pay over $38,000 per year for their education.
But when they graduate, they find themselves in more debt than they can handle, with an ROI of -$98,000.
The Art Institute of Atlanta
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
The Art Institute of Atlanta is just bad, bad news all around. Just refer to Yelp and the average two stars to tell you what you need to know. Or, if you prefer solid numbers, just look at their statistics. The graduation rate is a mere 23%, and those who do graduate often find themselves on the hook for over $31,000 in loans.
The school has closed several of its locations, and according to numerous people who have dealt with it, it’s a “pure scam.” Yikes – it’s probably best to do a bit more research into them if you have any interest in attending.
Location: Portland, Oregon
Reed graduates can only expect to earn a median salary of just over $42,000 – and that’s a decade after beginning their journey with the school.
Couple the low pay with the $54,000 annual cost of attendance and you can see why it’s best to steer clear of this one.
