The Edquity Score is our all in one estimate of how much of a financial fit this college is for you. It factors in expected costs as well as benefits.
The formula weights the following variables:
- Net cost by family income band - 35%
- Graduation rate by ethnicity - 35%
- Unemployment rate - 8%
- Median earnings - 20%
- Percent paying back their loans - 2%
If a school is missing certain data points, the college doesn't get a score.
