commencement photoWinona State University has once again been recognized for providing high quality education at an affordable price.

According to a new metric created by The College Database, WSU students enter the workforce earning an estimated $39,700 per year after graduation, ranking Winona State among the most financially effective of all Minnesota post-secondary schools. Schools on the list have annual tuition rates below $20,000, and new graduates who earn close to $40,000 or more per year, on average.

Primary sources for the information include: NCES, the primary federal entity for collecting and analyzing data related to education;

IPEDS, the primary federal source for data on colleges, universities, and technical and vocational postsecondary schools in the U.S.; and Carnegie Classification.

The College Database is a free, non-commercial website dedicated to providing current and future post-secondary students and their families with accurate and valuable college- and career-related information.
