Graduates of For-Profit Colleges Do Not Fare as WellFeb 23rd, 2012 | By Walter Pearson | Category: CAMPUS NEWS, FACULTY, PROGRAMS
In a recent study published by the Center for Post-secondary Education and Employment, it appears that students who graduate from for-profit institutions do not fare as well as graduates from non-profits like Lewis University.
The graduates of for-profits had:
- higher loan default rates
- experienced more unemployment
- lower average salaries
The for-profit sector in our region includes the University of Phoenix, DeVry, Rasmussen, ITT, Everest, Sanford-Brown, Kendall, Chamberlain, Kaplan, Westwood, Argosy, American Intercontinental, Northwestern College (not Northwestern University), and Brown Mackie.
