HOUSTON (FOX 26) -
In a list published by AffordableSchools.net, University of Houston is mentioned among the colleges that offer the best return on investment for students in the U.S.
To appear on the AffordableSchools.net ranking, colleges and universities are expected to keep the cost of tuition low and have an excellent track record of giving students the skills and credentials they need to earn a good income.
Multiple studies indicate that people with a college degree earn substantially more than anyone with only a high school diploma and the ranked colleges also provide an even more impressive return on investment.
"Because of the soaring cost of a college education, substantial student debt, and a tough job market, parents and students increasingly focus on potential income," said John Ferrer, general editor of AffordableSchools.net. "That's why we created this ranking of the most affordable colleges with the best return. We are very pleased to highlight these 50 outstanding U.S. colleges that offer a quality higher education and strong job prospects at an affordable price."
Texas A&M University in College Station and University of Texas - Austin were also included in the ranking.
