UW Rates Exceptionally Well on Obama’s College Scorecard

During his State of the Union address last night, President Obama announced a new College Scorecard that would help students and parents make better decisions about which college to attend. The College Scorecard allows you to enter the name of a college of interest or select factors that are important in any college search. You can find scorecards for colleges based on factors such as programs or majors offered, location, and enrollment size.

According to the administration’s College Scorecard, the University of Washington, including UW-Tacoma and UW-Bothell, all “score” exceptionally well compared to other post-secondary institutions in Washington state. This validates what we have been saying for a long time: the UW offers great value and a great education for Washington state residents!
