Graduates of For-Profit Colleges Do Not Fare as Well

Feb 23rd, 2012 | By | 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.
