Grambling State University
Grambling State University, founded in 1901 in Louisiana, began as an all-black college but has since moved away from that label. It enrolls over four thousand undergraduates, with a graduation rate below half, resulting in an average student loan debt of twenty-six thousand dollars. In-state tuition is just below twenty-five thousand dollars, while out-of-state students pay close to thirty-four thousand dollars. The median starting income for graduates is forty-four thousand dollars, making it a notable choice for in-state students but less favorable for those from out-of-state due to the higher tuition costs.
