University of the Pacific Nation’s Top in Career Earnings for Low-Income Students

According to a new Georgetown University research, the University of the Pacific ranked first in the nation in career earnings among low-income students who attended universities with large percentages of Pell Grant recipients.

Pacific is ranked in the top 1 percent of the 3,410 colleges studied in the United States, and third in California, after only Stanford University and USC.

University take ways

Moreover, Pacific is ranked No. 39 in the country for lifetime earnings for students from low-income families among all public and private universities. 

Based on the analysis by Georgetown’s Center for Education and the Workforce, Pacific was first in the country when it came to colleges and universities with the highest percentage of Pell Grant recipients–those in the top half.

As a metric of low-income students at Georgetown, the percentage of students who receive Pell Grants is used.

Pell Grants are need-based grants that help low-income students get a college education, and its participants at Pacific often receive university financing in addition to the government grant, as well as academic support services such as success coaching and tutoring.

The Georgetown University research showed that 37 percent of Pacific undergraduate students receive Pell Grants.

According to Pacific President Christopher Callahan, Pacific’s overall (39th) and California (third) rankings among public and private colleges reviewed in the Georgetown research reflect the university’s commitment to low-income students.

Pacific is in the top 2 percent of all four-year schools and institutions in the United States in terms of alumni earnings among all students, according to the Georgetown Center.
