Is UW Superior a good school?

There is no one way to define a "good" college or university.

There are a few statistics that can give you a good idea of how satisfied students are and how well a school supports its students.

Retention, graduation, and job placement statistics all give valuable information about the quality of the student experience, before and after graduation.

Job outcomes and student debt

In 2020, students graduated with an average of $30,220 in student loans for each student with debt.
