2021 Best Colleges in Louisiana by Salary Score
We ranked the best schools in Louisiana by bachelor's degree Salary Scores to show how they compare to universities across the country in terms of alumni earnings in the first year after graduation. The Salary Score is calculated by comparing median alumni salaries for each bachelor's degree program to median salaries for graduates from the same programs at other schools, then compiling an overall score to show how well each college prepares alumni across programs for a higher-paying career. The cost of living in Louisiana is lower than the national average, and alumni who work in-state may have lower salaries in line with lower living expenses. Despite the lower cost of living in the state, Tulane University and Louisiana State University had higher Salary Scores than the median for all colleges in the United States.
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 Louisiana.
