The College of the Holy Cross ranks No. 7 among liberal arts schools, and No. 21 overall, for graduates’ starting and mid-career salary potential by PayScale.com. The annual list is based on the salaries of both recent graduates and those with 10 to 20 years of experience. Starting median salaries among Holy Cross graduates with less than five years of experience averaged $44,300. The mid-career median was $107,000.

Holy Cross also came in at No. 12 on PayScale’s “Schools for Sports Fans” list, which ranks schools that dominate in both athletic standings and post-graduate earnings.

According to PayScale.com, the College Salary Report includes 1,058 schools this year (up from 1,003 last year), which is representative of more than 80 percent of all enrolled bachelor’s degree candidates in the United States, and 130 majors (up from 120 last year). All data used to produce the PayScale 2012-13 College Salary Report were collected from employees who successfully completed PayScale’s employee survey.

In the 2012 PayScale College ROI (return on investment) Report, a previously released ranking based on what students pay to attend college versus what they get back in lifetime earnings, Holy Cross was No. 40 out of 850 U.S. colleges for best tuition ROI.
