Lowest Net Price

The multitude of statistics provided by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) includes average net price for undergraduate students at colleges in the U.S. While these figures don't apply to graduate students, schools with a low net price for undergraduates often have comparatively low graduation tuition as well:

  • Coppin State University ($6,840 in-district, $7,110 in-state)
  • Bowie State University ($8,956 in-state)
  • University of Maryland-University College ($8,514 in-state)
  • Frostburg State University ($9,234 in-state)
  • University of Maryland Eastern Shore ($7,540 in-state)

Graduation Rate

Although a school's graduation rate as reported by the NCES is based on undergraduate students, the figure speaks to a school's ability to help students succeed with their goals. Graduation rates reflect students who enrolled full-time to pursue a bachelor's degree, and then completed that degree within six years (or 150% of the normal 4-year timeframe).

  • Johns Hopkins University (94% graduation rate)
  • University of Maryland-College Park (86% graduation rate)
  • Loyola University Maryland (81% graduation rate)
  • St Mary's College of Maryland (78% graduation rate)
  • Washington College (75% graduation rate)

These evaluation factors give prospective graduate students in the state of Maryland plenty of food for thought when looking into master's programs.
