GradSense

GradSense is a unique online resource sponsored by the Council of Graduate Schools that provides graduate and undergraduate students with interactive tools and information relevant to financial issues in higher education. Topics covered include the value of pursuing an advanced degree, loan repayment, and navigating the transition from student to career professional.

This site aims to help graduate and undergraduate students make wise financial decisions that will support their long term academic and professional career goals.

GradSense provides students with important financial information about the value of pursuing an advanced degree. Based on data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the National Science Foundation and the National Center for Education Statistics, GradSense was researched, designed and developed by CGS in collaboration with TIAA-CREF. Along with median debt and income data, the GradSense website also provides students with loan repayment advice, spending tips, and career guidance.
