2021 Best Colleges in Kentucky by Salary Score
This list of the best Kentucky universities ranked by Salary Scores offers students a look at how each school stacks up against all other U.S. colleges in terms of alumni salary by major for a bachelor's degree. The Salary Score acts as an indicator of how well alumni at a specific college fare in their first year after graduation compared to others from the same field of study. We developed these scores by comparing median alumni earnings for graduates from a certain major at a college to alumni salaries from the same programs at other universities. We then compiled these program scores into an overall Salary Score to show how well a given college prepares alumni for high-paying jobs, regardless of what they study. Kentucky has a lower than average cost of living, so alumni who work in-state may have lower salaries in line with lower living expenses. Even with a lower cost of living, Thomas More University had a higher Salary Score than the median for colleges in the United States.
