High Roi CollegesSeton Hall students enjoy one of the highest returns on investment among New Jersey colleges and universities, according to a new survey, "Highest Return on Investment Colleges in New Jersey," released by affordablecollegesonline.org.

Among the 162 colleges and universities in the state, Seton Hall was ranked seventh in student return on investment (ROI), a calculation taking into account tuition prices, starting salaries for graduates and ROI estimation over a long-term period.

"We are committed to the long-term success of our students and are continually working to enhance the value of a Seton Hall education," said Alyssa McCloud, Vice President of Enrollment Management. "Seton Hall offers students all of the academic advantages of a large research university, a strong national reputation, rigorous academic programs, renowned faculty, proximity to New York City, a network of accomplished alumni, and an array of internship and hands-on career building experiences. All of this takes place in an intimate, nurturing academic environment with small classes and significant personal attention and faculty mentorship."

Seton Hall's focus on affordability and access are also central to its mission of offering optimal value to students. The university provides more than $70 million dollars in grants and scholarships each year, with 97 percent of students receiving some form of financial aid and 93 percent receiving a grant or scholarship directly from the university.

The innovative Seton Hall University Public Tuition Rate program offers high-achieving high school seniors from across the United States the chance to attend an elite Catholic university with a $22,500 tuition reduction per year for four years, making a Seton Hall education as affordable as a public university.

Students also enjoy a technological advantage. Named one of the Top 5 Most Connected Colleges by U.S. News and World Report, Seton Hall equips students for success in a wired world after graduation. All undergraduates receive a state-of-the-art laptop or tablet to ensure that they have access to and experience utilizing the latest technology. Hands-on experience with the newest devices helps students excel in their studies and learn important skills for use in the job market.

Seton Hall students enjoy an employment rate after graduation that is almost 20% higher than the national average. They receive guidance and support throughout their time at the university through faculty mentors and career counselors who provide extensive internship and career guidance. Over 550 employers come to campus every year to recruit the university’s graduates –making it one of the largest job fairs in the state.
