College Scorecards prepared by the U.S. Department of Education's College Affordability and Transparency Center provides data about a college's affordability and value. Each Scorecard includes five key pieces of data about a college: costs, graduation rate, loan default rate, average amount borrowed, and employment.

See also the College Affordability and Transparency Center (CATC). CATC provides information to student and parent consumers about college costs and other indicators of college outcome measures.
