2021 Best Colleges in Idaho by Salary Score

By the GradReports team | Updated 3/1/2021

This list features the best schools in Idaho ranked by Salary Score, an indicator of how alumni salaries from a particular college compare to alumni salaries for graduates with the same majors at other colleges. To determine this score we compared median alumni earnings in the first year after graduation for each major at one college to alumni earnings for the same major across all schools. We then combined the scores from all majors to create an overall Salary Score for that school. The three top-ranked colleges in Idaho are all public institutions: Boise State University, the University of Idaho, and Lewis-Clark State College.

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 Idaho. You can click on a school's name to view individual program scores. Read our methodology to learn more about how schools were ranked.
