The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa offers a strong return on investment, according to the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard. The free, easy-to-navigate, online tool provides data on college costs, student debt, graduation rates, post-college earnings and more to help students and their families make informed decisions when choosing a college or university.
UH Mānoa performs well on the key indicators and is above the national median for four-year schools in graduation rate (63% vs. 58%) and earnings ($56,055 vs. $50,391), and below the national median in average annual cost for in-state students ($13,430 vs. $18,902).
“The College Scoreboard findings show that Hawaiʻi’s flagship public university continues to be a tremendous value,” said UH Mānoa Provost Michael Bruno. “You couple the College Scorecard data-based information with the fact that UH Mānoa is consistently ranked in the top 2% nationally and internationally by the major university rankings services, and Mānoa is meeting its goal of providing high-quality, affordable higher education to the people of Hawaiʻi.”
The College Scorecard provides a wide range of information and data, including each school’s top fields of study and earnings after graduation for each of those fields, campus diversity, student to faculty ratio, acceptance rate, retention and more.
