EKU Among Top Institutions in Kentucky for Financial Return on Investment

Eastern Kentucky University ranks among the top public and private colleges and universities in Kentucky for financial return on investment.

The distinction stems from a new metric created by The College Database.  Schools on the list have annual tuition rates below $20,000, and new graduates who earn more than $30,000 per year, on average. According to the survey, EKU graduates enter the workforce earning an average of approximately $36,200 per year after graduation, ranking it among the most financially effective of all post-secondary institutions in the Commonwealth.

“With the cost of college a concern for many families, it’s important for students to find a school that produces successful, well-paid graduates,” said Matt Davis, managing director for communication and partnerships with The College Database. “Therefore, it’s equally important to recognize the colleges and universities that offer both quality and affordable post-secondary options.”

Eastern Kentucky University is a comprehensive university serving approximately 15,500 students on its Richmond campus, at its educational centers in Corbin, Danville, Manchester, Somerset and Lancaster, and throughout Kentucky.
