Oregon Tech Ranks Highest Starting Salary College in Oregon
July 22, 2013, KLAMATH FALLS, ORE. – Students in Oregon and across the country are feeling the burden of ever-rising tuition costs. In reaction, most students are looking for schools with two key features: affordability and the promise of high-paying jobs after graduation. As such, the Online College Database crafted a list of 20-30 schools in Oregon, with the Oregon Institute of Technology ranking number one.
This distinction stems from a new metric created by The College Database. Schools on the list have annual tuition rates below $20,000, and new graduates who earn more than $30,000 per year, on average. Oregon Tech students enter the workforce earning an estimated $54,400 per year after graduation, ranking it first among all Oregon post-secondary schools.
“We’re very pleased that Oregon Tech is recognized for our high return on investment,” said Oregon Tech President Chris Maples. “Our students and alumni can take great pride in the fact that Oregon Tech graduates are so highly regarded by employers.”
With the cost of college a concern for many families, it's important for students to find a school that produces successful, well-paid graduates. Therefore, it's equally important to recognize the colleges and universities that offer both quality and affordable post-secondary options.
