William Carey University recently placed in the top 100 on a national survey that considers costs and employability of the school's graduates. WCU ranked the highest of all Mississippi universities included in the survey.

The College Rankings Index survey was conducted by California-based Educate to Career and was based on the academic profile of entering students, the total costs of attendance and the success of the students upon entering the job market. The survey analyzed over 1,200 colleges and universities throughout the United States.

The survey considers four-year colleges with annual enrollments greater than 1,000 students. Some metrics included in calculating the rankings are the percentage of graduates employed in occupations which utilize their field of study; the average salary earned by recent graduates; the number of years to graduate; the net cost of tuition; and loan default rates.
