Colorado is the second state to launch a website within the College Measures program that compares earnings data across the state by program, degree level, and institution. The site includes more than 200,000 graduates from 2002-2012 who are employed in Colorado, and earn at or above the state’s minimum wage. Each report covers earnings at one, five, and ten years after graduation. Founded in 2007, CSU-Global is the youngest regionally accredited university in the state and these results reflect the success of its graduates from 2009-2012.
