The recent study compared "schools based on a variety of data sources, including starting salary, tuition, living expenses, student retention rate and scholarships awarded" to come up with their results, says the website. 

UC came in at No. 5, with nearby Miami University at Oxford taking the No. 4 spot.

SmartAsset — a website that helps people make "smart financial decisions" — said, on average, UC grads make a starting salary of $55,100 with a yearly tuition (for in-state students) of around $11,000. (For the 2020-21 school year, tuition increased to $12,138.) Student living costs are estimated to be around $16,476.
