  • Jeff Selingo

    Editor | Author | Columnist | SpeakerWhen my parents bought their first

    house in the early 1960s, they focused

    on buying a place to live in and raise

    their children. By the time I purchased

    my first house early last decade, buying

    a house was as much about the

    "investment" as it was about buying

    something in order to put a roof over

    your head. Flipping homes turned into

    something people did for a living.

    "Return on investment" became as important a metric as the

    number of bedrooms and bathrooms in the house.

    Return on investment has now become an important met-

    ric for another big purchase in life: the college degree. For

    generations we've been told that going to college was worth it

    both from an economic standpoint (higher earnings) and for

    improved quality of life (better health and civic engagement).

    College enrollment

    surged by one-third last

    decade. Going to any

    college, at any cost was

    the ticket to a better life.

    Now as incomes

    lag and college prices

    continue to rise--aver-

    age tuition eats up 40

    percent of median

    income these days--the

    conversation about

    going to college has evolved into figuring out the return on

    investment of going to a specific school to major in a particular

    degree program.

    Better data tools now allow prospective students and par-

    ents to measure colleges based on the salaries of their gradu-

    ates. This is just one measurement of value, and shouldn't

    solely be used to judge a school. But as expected, college

    Whats the Value of a College Degree?

    www.recreateinutah.com Page 9

  • leaders are vocal in their opposition to such measurements. Some

    want to return to the old days where they told families that the

    degree was worth it based solely on trust.

    For me, it's a win for prospective students and their families to

    have salary information available to them during the college

    search, along with the answers to other key questions: How long

    will it take me to graduate? How much student loan debt will I need

    to take on? When viewed together, such information helps con-

    sumers measure the return on investment. Here's why that's a

    good thing for students and colleges:

    Forces colleges to better measure "the experience."

    College leaders say the campus experience is about so much

    more than the degree and what you earn after graduation. But most

    colleges can't quantify that "value added," and even if they can

    through measures such as the National Survey of Student

    Engagement or the Collegiate Learning Assessment, schools don't

    want to release the results. If schools dislike earnings information

    being made available, it might force colleges to come up with other

    ways to measure value.

    Helps differentiate colleges.If college A has a much higher graduation rate than College B

    and graduates of College A have higher earnings than that of

    College B, the ROI helps students and parents better separate

    schools that might look similar on many other factors, such as

    majors, size, and location.

    Puts potential loan debt in context.The idea of loan payments are unfamiliar to potential college

    students if they never had debt in their lives. What's more, student

    loans are often expressed in total debt rather than monthly pay-

    ments, the way most of us think about paying back debt. If schools

    are requiring you take on $30,000 in debt to go there, then they

    should be able to tell you what graduates from that college in your

    field are earning in order to pay off that debt.
