Top 10 Best Colleges For Low Income Students

College For Low Income Students

A recent list of the best colleges for low-income students was compiled by CollegeNET, a Portland, Oregon-based developer of web technology for higher education, and PayScale, Inc., an online salary, benefits and compensation information company. Their collaboration resulted in a list of the ten best schools for disadvantaged students.

How the schools were rated

Schools were analyzed according to how well they helped low-income students graduate from college and begin their careers without worrying about excessive student debt. The specific rating categories included tuition, percentage of the student body from low-income households, the percentage of students who graduate, salaries of graduates once they land a job, and the size of each school’s endowment.

Here are the ones that made the top 10 list:

#1. Montana Tech of the University of Montana - annual tuition: $6,464; students from low-income households: 31.3 percent

#2. Rowan University, Glassboro, New Jersey - annual tuition: $12,380; students from low-income households: 70.7 percent
