If you’re looking for government data on colleges, the College Scorecard, published by the U.S. Department of Education, may be useful to you — whether you’re a student looking for a college, or a writer, or somehow affiliated with the education sector.
The data profiles colleges/ universities which receive federal funding and reports on many variables including, but not limited to:
- Average annual cost, plus breakdown by family income
- Financial aid and debt
- Graduation rate and retention
- Salary after attending
- Student population and demographics
- SAT and ACT test scores, as available
- Most popular programs
Data is for undergraduate (associate’s, bachelor’s) degrees only, at the moment.
