Median starting salaries for grads is $51,000

Attractive salaries are among the rewards enjoyed by RIT alumni, based on the results of a study that determined the median starting salary and mid-career salary for graduates from U.S colleges and universities.

According to the most recent PayScale College Salary Report, the median starting salary for a recent RIT graduate is $51,000. In addition, the mid-career median salary, which represents individuals with an average of 15 years of work experience who have completed no more than a bachelor's degree, is $82,500 for RIT alumni.

Payscale Inc., a Seattle-based compensation analysis firm, surveyed employers in order to incorporate salary information into its data.
