College Scorecard

  • The Scorecard provides the clearest, most accessible, and most reliable national data on college costs, graduation rates, typical debt levels, and post-college earnings. It is available to help students make informed choices about attending college.
  • It is primarily designed for students and families, so the data are presented in an easy-to-understand graphical format.
  • Students can also make specific searches based on what’s most important to them. For example, students can use the College Scorecard to find men- or women-onlyinstitutions, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, specific religious affiliations, schools that offer particular types of degrees and academic programs, and so much more.
  • By making federal data on the performance of U.S. institutions widely available to the public, the U.S. Department of Education hopes that increased transparency will help support students as they pursue their academic and career goals through a college education and seek to find the institutions that will give them the best chances for success.
