Looking for more financial information? Check out, an engaging and comprehensive resource developed as a collaboration between the Council of Graduate Schools and TIAA-CREF.

In addition to highlighting trends and developments in topics related to student finances, such as student debt and taxation issues, GradSense features a host of useful tools and infographics. Use these resources to understand what your degree may be worth, how long it may take to repay your student loan, or what salaries you can expect to earn from different careers.


GradSense recently underwent a facelift, so you’ll easily find relevant articles and links highlighted on the homepage. You’ll also find resources from their university partners on the homepage, which includes the University of Illinois.
