CLEMSON — Clemson University graduates have the highest return on their college investments than those at other colleges and universities in South Carolina, according to a new list released Monday.

AffordableCollegesOnline.org ranked the top colleges in South Carolina with low net costs in tuition and fees whose graduates have the highest lifetime earnings when compared to non-degree holders. Clemson graduates will earn $872,700 more than those without degrees over a 30-year span, according to the website.

“We’ve sifted through comprehensive data sources to find colleges and universities in South Carolina that offer a high quality education with consistent, long-term payoffs in the workplace,” said AffordableCollegesOnline.org founder Dan Schuessler.

The website used 2013 data from PayScale, whose calculation of Clemson graduates’ return increased significantly from 2012. A previous ranking using the 2012 PayScale data put Clemson among the top 50 U.S. public universities with a return of $409,200.

AffordableCollegesOnline.org ranks fully accredited public and private institutions that grant four-year degrees.

Note: Clemson named #1 ROI in SC for the 2nd time in a week.
