2021 Best Colleges in Connecticut by Salary Score

By the GradReports team | Updated 3/1/2021

We ranked the best colleges in Connecticut by Salary Score to help students compare schools based on alumni salary. This score was calculated by comparing the median alumni earnings in the year after graduation for each bachelor's degree major at a college to the alumni earnings for the same major at other schools. A higher score indicates that as a whole, the degrees offered by the college tend to earn an alumnus a higher salary than the same degrees at other colleges. Most of the schools on this list feature Salary Scores higher than the U.S. median of 50, with top-ranked Yale University scoring a 98.9. Both Yale and Trinity College also earn spots on our 2021 list of best colleges in the country.

To be considered for our state rankings, schools must offer and provide data for at least 8 bachelor's programs. You can click on a school's name to view individual program scores. Read our methodology to learn more about how schools were ranked.
