OK, let me clarify that headline. You're not going to get tuition money back directly from a college or university. However, there are certain schools with graduates who earn far more in their post-collegiate careers than other schools' graduates. This blog looks at those!
Every year, CNBC publishes a list of "The Top 50 U.S. Colleges That Pay Off The Most." That includes both private and public schools. Most on the private list should be no surprise.
Here are the top five:
- Stanford University
- Harvard University
- University of Chicago
- Princeton University
- Dartmouth College
As for the public schools, there are quite a few you may not have known. Again, the top five:
- University of Washington-Bothell
- CUNY Baruch College
- University of Washington-Seattle
- Purdue University-West Lafayette
- University of Michigan-Ann Arbor
