Moneymakers: Illinois alumni earnings ranked

Campus News

The University of Illinois is among the 50 large colleges whose alumni earn the most, according to StartClass, an educational site that’s part of the Graphiq network. Only four-year colleges with at least 15,000 undergraduate students were considered; they were sorted based on median earnings 10 years after enrollment. The data itself came from the College Scorecard, an education database released by the White House, and only includes information on students who received some form of federal financial aid.
