Alfred University tops in Western New York in PayScale rankings

Graduates of Alfred University (AU) get a good return on their investment in the form of lifetime earnings, according to a ranking of more than 1,500 colleges and universities.

The “PayScale 2013 ROI (Return on Investment) Report” says that Alfred University ranks the highest among all schools in Western New York in terms of the 30-year return on investment. Alfred University is 253 on the list, with the University of Buffalo next-highest among Western New York schools with a ranking of 265.

Rankings are based on cost of a degree, with financial aid factored in, compared to anticipated 30-year earnings of graduates.

“This confirms what we have been saying: An Alfred University is worth the investment students and their families make in an AU degree,” said Alfred University President Charles M. Edmondson.
