UAH once again named best return on investment

PayScale 2015 College ROI

The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) has been named by PayScale Inc. as the best return on investment among all Alabama schools for both in-state and out-of-state students. It was also ranked in the top 100 nationwide.

According to PayScale Inc., which provides compensation analysis and outcome data for a variety of market sectors, UAH alumni earn a typical early career salary of $52,000, with jobs in engineering and nursing pulling in even higher averages. Graduates also report a 20-year net return on investment of $564,700 without financial aid and $600,600 with financial aid.

This is not the first time UAH has been recognized as a solid investment; the university topped PayScale's 2014 list as well as those of two others – Online College Database and Affordable Colleges Online – in 2013.
