Comprehensive analysis of data by The Princeton Review® puts UH in the top 7 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges for giving students a return on investment (ROI). The education services company crunched more than 40 data points to tally the ROI ratings. The survey data, collected in 2016-17, addressed topics including academics, affordability, financial aid, career services, graduation rates, student debt and alumni support. It also factored in starting and mid-career salaries and job satisfaction data from PayScale.com.
“It is heartwarming to have our students look back at their academic careers and the financial investment they’ve made and say it was worth it. But it’s truly gratifying to know that it’s not just anecdotal— the data backs this up,” said Richard Walker, vice president for Student Affairs and Enrollment Services. “When students choose the University of Houston, it’s our mission to make sure they get an outstanding education that prepares them for a rewarding career.”
