A mobility rate looks at the likelihood that students will move up in income, based on their educational preparation at a college or University. In this study by The Equality of Opportunity Project, TAMIU graduates’ mobility helped the University to be ranked third in the nation for highest upward income mobility rate for graduates.
The odds are that you are likely to enjoy greater earning potential (and thus mobility) upon your TAMIU degree completion. That means a better life for you, your family and your community.
It’s complicated, but they established the TAMIU mobility rate by combining our share of students from lower-income families with our success at moving them into the upper part of the distribution. In some cases, graduates went from the bottom 40% to the top 40%.
The estimates presented here are based on millions of anonymous tax fillings and tuition records. These statistics cover only schools that participate in Title IV federal funding, which excludes the military academies and certain other colleges.
Measures of outcomes and mobility are for students born between 1980 and 1982, who are around age 35, when relative income rank stabilizes.
