Lowest Net Price

Knowing how much a student will actually have to spend on school is an important factor when deciding which school to attend. In order to make it easier to compare the out-of-pocket cost of various schools, the NCES uses net price, a figure calculated by taking the total cost of tuition, books, room and board, and other fees and subtracting from that number the average amount of financial aid received by full-time undergrad students who attend that school. Net prices in the area ranged from about $4,000 to $35,000 for 2014-2015.

  • Henry Ford College ($3,928)
  • Oakland Community College ($4,175)
  • Schoolcraft College ($4,854)
  • Wayne County Community College District ($5,337)
  • Macomb Community College ($7,173)

Highest Graduation Rate

The graduation rate for a school can give a prospective student some information about how devoted that school is to the success of each of their students. The graduation rate, as given by the NCES, is based on the number of full-time undergraduate students who complete their studies in 150% of the time normally allotted for their program. In other words, a bachelor's degree program is normally completed in 4 years, so 150% of that time would be 6 years. Most traditional institutions in the area had rates below 50% in 2015.

  • University of Detroit Mercy (63% graduation rate)
  • Madonna University (61% graduation rate)
  • Lawrence Technological University (56% graduation rate)
