President Barack Obama this week unveiled the College Scorecard, a look at the nation’s top colleges that provide the biggest bang for the buck.

“In an economy increasingly based on knowledge and innovation, some higher education is the surest ticket to the middle class,” Obama said in his Sept. 12 address announcing the new scoreboard.

“By the end of this decade, two in three job openings will require some higher education,” he said. “That’s why a degree at a two-year college will earn you $10,000 more each year than someone who only finished high school.”

Those colleges have high graduation rates at a good price. None of Arizona’s four-year schools made the list because their graduation rates couldn’t compete with those that made this list.

For example, Yale University has a graduation rate of 97 percent, and the average net price for low-income students (with family income up to $48,000) is $7,637. Princeton University’s graduation rate is 96.5 percent and its average net price for low-income students is $5,720.

Arizona State University’s graduation rate was 58 percent, University of Arizona’s was 61 percent and Northern Arizona University’s was 49 percent.

The new College Scorecard calculates its graduation rate as 150 percent of normal time to completion for first-time, full-time students.

The star of the show was Scottsdale Community College, which made the two-year college list where students earn high salaries after graduation. According to the College Scorecard ranking, the median earnings of students 10 years after entering SCC is $35,700.

Maria Harper-Marinick, executive vice chancellor and provost of the Maricopa Community Colleges, said it was gratifying to see one of the district’s colleges make the list.

“We are working to ensure that those who attend any of our colleges are prepared for a successful career upon graduation,” she said.
