College issues statement on omission from DOE College Scorecard

Grove City College President Paul J. McNulty ’80 issued the following statement on the College’s omission from the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard:

“Grove City College is noticeably absent from the U.S. Department of Education’s recently released College Scorecard. In response to our inquiry, the Department informed us that the site is limited only to Title IV participating institutions.”

“Our graduates enjoy a well-recognized return on an affordable investment that exceeds national averages in all of the Scorecard categories.  We are concerned that Grove City’s absence from the Scorecard will confuse or disserve families seeking out higher education institutions with our record of success.”  

“However well-intentioned, the Scorecard as it exists now is incomplete and does not fully disclose comprehensive data that families need to make informed decisions.  For now, the Department should, at the very least, include a disclaimer that the Scorecard is not comprehensive or reflective of all college and universities.”
