Are you, or someone you know, about to choose a college? If so, check out the newly revised College Scorecard from the U.S. Department of Education (ED)! President Obama announced ED’s College Scorecard on Saturday.
“Everyone should be able to find clear, reliable, open data on college affordability and value,” the President said. “Many existing college rankings reward schools for spending more money and rejecting more students -- at a time when America needs our colleges to focus on affordability and supporting all students who enroll.”
The College Scorecard has been revamped to provide unbiased information to help students make informed college choices. Improvements were made based on direct input from students, their families, and their advisers. Information includes average annual cost, graduation rate, average salary for a graduate, student body demographics, typical debt amount, test scores, and more. Finally, the College Scorecard features our GI Bill Comparison Tool as the official companion tool to research approved GI Bill programs and calculate your benefits!
