State University System of Florida publishes new tool

University of Florida

The Florida Board of Governors, which oversees the State University System of Florida, has published a new online tool to help students select their majors. Developed at the direction of the Florida Legislature and Governor Ron DeSantis, the website provides important information to students and their families, including:

  • Earnings over time – what is the earning potential for each academic program at 1, 5, and 10 years after graduation?
  • Compare earnings – what are some examples of low, median, and high wages across multiple programs?
  • Beyond the bachelor’s – what is the additional earning potential if I continue my education beyond a bachelor’s degree?
  • Earnings by major group – what salary ranges are expected for different major groups? Can I compare simultaneously and how do they compare?
  • Typical loan amounts – what is the proportion of students in the State University System who graduate with student loan debt? And what is the average loan amount of a specific academic program?
  • Loans over time – what are the projected monthly student loan debt payments as a proportion of potential monthly earnings over a ten-year period?

Students and families can access the tool through UF Admissions or the MyFloridaFuture website. The Board of Governors’ press release is available at flbog.edu.
