Brookville, N.Y.—Long Island University's residential campuses have been ranked among the top colleges and universities in New York with the greatest lifetime return on investment.

This exclusive list, published by (AC Online), identified the top 84 schools for ROI in New York, with LIU Brooklyn ranked at #14 and LIU Post at #59. According to AC Online, graduates from these schools earn more over 30 years than non-degree holders and on average earn more than graduates from other New York schools.

AC Online—a noted resource for college affordability and financial aid information—developed a specific methodology to identify the colleges in New York that show consistent payoffs in the workplace.

In their analysis of education and income data, AC Online assessed only fully accredited, four-year, not-for-profit institutions (as designated by the Carnegie Foundation), using tuition and fees provided by The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System and the National Center for Education Statistics, and average starting salaries of graduates and ROI calculation provided by PayScale.

"These are important lists for prospective students to consider," says AC Online founder Dan Schuessler. "We've sifted through comprehensive data sources to find colleges and universities in New York that offer a high quality education with consistent, long-term payoffs in the workplace."
