TU Graduates and Earning Potential

Casey Reed
We always get asked about job placement and earnings, and some new findings suggest that University of Tulsa graduates have the highest earning potential among Oklahoma colleges and are some of the top paid in the region, according to a new survey.

PayScale — a market leader in global online compensation data – reported that TU alumni with a bachelor’s degree earn a starting median salary of more than $49,000 and a mid-career salary in excess of $90,000.

The survey results rank TU first in Oklahoma and No. 5 among schools in Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky.

“TU graduates are prepared to begin making a difference their first day on the job. Our faculty work diligently to ensure students gain real-world experience and are aware of the many opportunities available to them,” said university President Steadman Upham. “Many of our students are courted by leading companies before they even receive their degrees, and once they enter the workforce, they are well compensated.”
