U-M has a medium net cost, a high graduation rate and a lower-than-average per-student state appropriation, according to recent data on two new college scorecards, one by the U.S. Department of Education and one by the Business Leaders for Michigan organization.
The interactive scorecard is based on U.S. Department of Education data. Individual college scorecards include five key pieces of data: costs, graduation rate, loan default rate, average amount borrowed, and employment. Earnings data will be added to the employment segment in the coming year.
The Performance Tracker unveiled by the Business Leaders for Michigan offers a more detailed look at the state’s 15 public universities. It tracks more than 30 pieces of data in four broad categories and compares it to the peer public universities nationwide.
