Return on Education Share Share
Back to Top
What's the return on the cost of your education?

Is it worth your money to attend Mesalands Community College? There are many ways to estimate the financial return on your education.

We use the 10-year average earnings (the 10 years start when you enroll, so if you attend a 4-year college, this would be approximately 6 years after you graduate) and the all in one year cost of attending the school. The all in cost is the sum of tuition, fees, and on-campus housing.

By comparing the two, you can get a sense if what the average graduate in early to mid career makes at least covers your cost of attending one year of school.

A higher number is better.
