POCATELLO — Idaho State University had the highest score among all of Idaho’s two-year and four-year higher education institutions in a recent study from the Brookings Institution ranking colleges by graduate salaries.
Institutions were ranked on a score scale of one to 100 to rate the value-added to median student earnings 10 years after enrollment of the 2001-2002 cohort, with 100 being the top score.
ISU scored the Idaho-high of 63, beating out all other Idaho institutions by at least 10 points. The closest ranked four-year institution, the University of Idaho, and two-year institution, North Idaho College, both scored 53. Both public and private institutions were included in the rankings.
