CNBC Make It has ranked the University of Washington Bothell No. 2 on its list of public colleges that provide the greatest return on investment.

The ranking of colleges that “pay off the most” was based on CNBC’s analysis of data provided by The Hechinger Report’s Tuition Tracker and PayScale’s College Salary Report.

According to the CNBC Make It list, the average net cost for UW Bothell students from families with an annual income of $48,001 to $75,000 is $8,767. The median salary for alumni with 0-5 years of experience is $58,200 and the median salary for alumni with 10-plus years of experience is $104,100. The salary average, for early and mid-career alumni is $81,150.

The University of Washington Seattle was ranked No. 1 on the CNBC Make It list, which was published July 16. UW also was ranked No. 28 on the Times Higher Education’s world university rankings for 2020, released July 17.

“UW Bothell is a student-centered campus with faculty and staff committed to helping students succeed,” Sharon Jones, UW Bothell vice chancellor for academic affairs, said in a press release. “We meet students where they are, offering core classes in the evening, instituting an early warning system that alerts counselors when students experience drawbacks and ensuring the work they do here mirrors what they’ll be doing out there. We are pleased by the recognition, because we believe in the power of a UW Bothell degree to transform lives and uplift communities.”

In the release, Sean Marsh, interim associate vice chancellor of advancement, said, “As we near our 30th year in 2020, UW Bothell has more than 22,000 alumni and most of them remain in the state of Washington where they are innovating new technologies and contributing to the region’s quality of life.”

According to the release, June Altaras, MultiCare senior vice president and chief quality, safety and nursing officer, credits the classes she took at UW Bothell for her analytical thinking, research success and vision for diversity in hiring and patient care.

“I believe that there is not a day that goes by that my education at UW Bothell doesn’t influence something I’m doing, impact my thinking or impact a decision,” she said in the release.
