Arizona State University's Top Rankings

Arizona State University is ranked on 14 lists of the best colleges by earnings one year out of college.


Salary and Debt by Major at Arizona State University

We calculated a salary score for each of Arizona State University's programs by comparing program-specific median alumni earnings to median alumni earnings for the same program across all schools that provide this data. This way, students can compare the relative salary strength of a specific major at Arizona State University to the same major at other schools. A school's overall score by level is based on the school's by-program performance weighted by student enrollment in each program. Data is sourced from the December 2020 release of the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard and reflects median alumni debt upon graduation and median alumni earnings in the year after graduation for students who received federal financial aid. Debt and salary numbers are shown rounded to the nearest $10.

If you are going in person, from what I hear from others this can be an amazing school, if it is online, just run. You are not a priority, you are not taught, you are handed a book and basically told good luck. The amount of run around you must perform to get questions answered, with the unrealistic expectations laid out for timelines is ridiculous. Most people online are working and going to school. The school is not set up for that despite their claims of being flexible, unless you are willing to basically... Read More

I received an online Masters Degree from ASU. I do believe that you will most likely have a good experience if you attend in person. However, they treat their online students terribly. I was never able to get a meeting with an advisor because they only make themselves available for students who attend in person. I did not get the experience I was hoping for. They also will not help you with career placement after you graduate
