We all hope to get the best bang for our college buck. After all, there’s a good chance student debt will be involved.

But how do you know that you’re getting a good value?

One indicator is LendEDU’s recently released 2019 College Risk-Reward Indicator Study, which details what you can expect in terms of return on your educational investment at hundreds of schools in the United States.

The indicator is a figure based on how much debt students who attend a given college have upon graduation and how much money those students earn early in their careers.

“The biggest key when it comes to being financially prosperous as a young college graduate is having a low student loan debt balance and a high early career pay,” LendEDU explains. “Contrarily, high levels of debt and low pay is a recipe for financial hardship.”
