Pratt Community College produces high paid graduates

Pratt Community College students graduating with an associate’s degree between 2008 and 2015 have a higher first year of employment annual wage than the Kansas community college sector average. This comes from a study done by the Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) Foresight 2020 report.

The average annual wage for first time earners who graduated from PCC with an associate’s degree in 2015 is $37,993 which is higher than the Kansas community college sector average of $33,239.

PCC students graduating with an associate’s degree between 2008 and 2014 have a higher first year of employment annual wage than the average of associate’s degree and bachelor’s degree graduates in that same time from all Kansas public colleges and universities.

”This is an amazing accomplishment for six consecutive years,” said Dr. Michael Calvert, PCC president.  “Hats off to our faculty and support staff that helped these students succeed and get good paying jobs. What a great return on investment for our students, local community and the state of Kansas.”

This information comes as the seventh installment of data from Foresight 2020, a 10-year strategic agenda approved by the Kansas Board of Regents for the state’s public higher education system. Established in September 2010, the plan sets long-range achievement goals that are measurable, reportable, and ensures the state’s higher education system meets Kansans’ expectations. The original plan included six goals, but a redesign reduced that number to three: increase higher education attainment among Kansans, improve alignment of the state's higher education system with the needs of the economy, and ensure state university excellence.

The report and its appendices provide data for 18 metrics, including demographics, graduation and retention rates, student success index rates, credential production, and data on graduates' rates of employment and average earnings in Kansas.
