Cal Poly Again Among Top 20 Public Schools in PayScale Survey
For the second consecutive year, Cal Poly ranked in the nation’s top 20 public universities for college tuition return on investment, according to PayScale. Additionally, Cal Poly’s overall ranking among all universities jumped to 37 from 62.
PayScale’s study analyzed more than 1,000 U.S. universities and colleges.
The 2013 report ranked Cal Poly’s ROI ninth out of 437 public universities. When looking at graduates’ mid-career salaries, Cal Poly alumni ranked 13th among 452 state schools across the nation.
Rankings such as PayScale’s illustrate the positive outcomes of a campus community dedicated to student success and faculty committed to Learn by Doing, said Cal Poly President Jeffrey D. Armstrong.
“Implicitly, this ranking acknowledges the excellence of a Cal Poly education," Armstrong said. "Employers pay our graduates so well because they know that Cal Poly alumni are innovative leaders and hard-working, creative thinkers."
