2022 Best Bachelor's Degrees Badge

Getting an undergraduate education is an increasingly expensive venture. Average college costs have been climbing for decades and continue to outpace inflation. Higher education is a significant financial investment, and we believe salary is a critical metric of a student’s return on that investment.

Our list of the best colleges for a bachelor’s degree ranks schools by Salary Score, a proprietary data point that shows how much alumni earn compared to other graduates in the same field of study. This list highlights schools whose graduates earn the highest starting salaries for their major, no matter what they studied. While other rankings highlight the most prestigious colleges with the best reputations, our list shows which schools have the best outcomes for their students. We're also the only company to rank graduate schools and online colleges based on alumni earnings by major. Read our methodology to learn more about how schools were ranked.

  • Half of the top ten colleges by Salary Score are Ivy League schools, while Columbia University, another Ivy, moved up eight spots to #11
  • Despite the negative public perception of for-profit colleges, grads from those schools reported above-average salaries when compared to public and private nonprofit school graduates
