2021 Best Colleges in Arkansas by Salary Score
The following list features the best schools in Arkansas based on Salary Score. This score indicates whether alumni from one school tend to have higher salaries than alumni with the same major at other schools. We calculated this score for each school by comparing the median alumni salary for each program at that school to the median alumni salary for the same program at other schools. Arkansas has a relatively low cost of living, so graduates of in-state schools may earn less because of lower living expenses. Even so, the top two schools on this list — John Brown University and the University of Arkansas — score above the median U.S. Salary Score at 65.17 and 56.63, respectively.
To be considered for our state rankings, schools must offer and provide data for at least 8 bachelor's programs. This list includes all eligible schools in Arkansas. You can click on a school's name to view individual program scores. Read our methodology to learn more about how schools were ranked.
