Everest College, which was headed up by the parent company Corinthian Colleges, shut down most of its campuses in 2016 after its reputation was tarnished by its “worthless” diplomas. Graduates complained of not being able to find jobs and no one taking their credentials seriously.
Everest was bought out, and the remaining campuses go by the name Altierus Career College.
College of Wooster
Location: Wooster, Ohio
Including the costs of living, students shelled out more than $64,000 last year.
The degrees from this school, located in Wooster, Ohio, hardly seem worth the massive amount of debt graduates are left with.
Location: Ashland, Wisconsin
The worst part about Northland is its graduate’s ten-year salary - $37,400. That’s low no matter which four-year school you graduate from.
And with an annual cost of around $36,183, it doesn’t seem like a very good investment. Their graduation rate also sits at a low 46%.
California State University
Location: Los Angeles, California
This is California State’s second appearance on their list, but this time, it’s for school in L.A. If you’re looking for low-cost options, they do have tuition that winds up costing most students less than $4,000 per year after aid.
Unfortunately, only 41% of those students wind up completing their programs on time.
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Location: Eastern New York
Rensselaer makes the list as one of the worst schools in America for its blatant restriction of its student’s ability to maintain their right to free speech.
In fact, they consistently find themselves making lists for the top ten worst in the US for exactly that reason.
