President Barack Obama introduced the Education Scoreboard in his State of the Union address Tuesday, Feb. 12.
The program is designed to help potential college students get “the most bang for their buck” when choosing where to pursue their secondary education.
While the scoreboard doesn’t rank colleges, it did examine institutions’ cost, graduation rate, loan default rate and median borrowing.
Webster was put in the “high” category for cost, graduation rate and median borrowing. The university’s loan default rate, 8.2 percent, is lower than the national average at 13.4 percent.
