Want to know how much you can expect to earn after graduating from college? The answer is important, especially if you're faced with a mountain of student loans. The U.S. Department of Education has created the College Scorecard, which lists - among other things - the current tuition of each of the country's colleges and universities which accept federal aid, and what the average student can expect to make ten years after graduation. 

We filtered the results to 35 schools which offer four-year degrees and are located within 100 miles of Pittsburgh. Since Grove City College does not accept federal aid, the school provided the following information.

  • Average annual tuition: $16,630
  • Graduation rate: 83% (six years)
  • Salary 10 years after graduation: $84,700.

The remaining 34 schools are listed below:
