2021 Best Colleges in Georgia by Salary Score

By the GradReports team | Updated 3/1/2021

Below are the best colleges in Georgia with the highest Salary Scores. A high score indicates that alumni from that college tend to earn higher salaries than alumni with the same major from other colleges. To calculate the Salary Score, we compared first-year earnings for alumni at a college to first-year earnings for alumni who earned the same bachelor's degree at other colleges. The list uses the combined Salary Scores for each individual program to indicate how alumni from all majors at that college performed. Each of the top five Georgia schools has a score above the national median of 50, with the top-ranked Georgia Institute of Technology earning an 86.35.

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.
