Texas: Earnings after Graduation
Higher education increases freedom from poverty, affords social mobility, and encourages greater participation in the public arena. A competitive Texas economy depends on its people having opportunities to increase their income and improve their quality of life. By examining earnings of Texas graduates by institution and field of study, this tool offers one more piece of information as you decide what, where and how long to study, and how much you want to pay for that credential.
The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board shares data with CollegeMeasures for inclusion in their web tool to make it easily accessible to a broad audience. This tool presents mean earnings for program completers, and does not necessarily guarantee a specific salary for a specific occupation. It should be noted that Texas chose to report mean earnings differently than the other states working with College Measures to date. The mean earnings of the graduates are calculated using the wages for students that were found employed in Texas at least three quarters in the calendar year considered.
