Presbyterian College is the second-highest ranked college in South Carolina for providing the greatest lifetime return on investment, according to AffordableCollegesOnline.org. The ACO.org rankings assert that graduates from these schools enjoy the largest earnings gap between non-degree holders over a 30-year span.
“Prospective students and their parents are often concerned about getting their money’s worth when selecting a college or university,” said Brian Fortman, PC’s Dean of Enrollment Management. “This high ranking affirms the value of a PC education.”
The colleges and universities on the ACO.org list are four-year, fully accredited not-for-profit colleges and universities. The criteria for selection includes net tuition prices and graduates’ average starting salaries and ROI calculations.
“These are important lists for prospective students to consider,” says ACO founder Dan Schuessler. “We’ve sifted through comprehensive data sources to find colleges and universities in South Carolina that offer a high quality education with consistent, long-term payoffs in the workplace.”
AffordableCollegesOnline.org provides prospective college students and their parents with information and resources to help them manage the cost of obtaining an education. It’s the first website to offer comprehensive lists of “Most Affordable Colleges” in different categories.
