Who Borrows Most? Bachelor's Degree Recipients with High Levels of Student Debt
Many discussions of student loan debt are clouded by a failure to distinguish between typical students and the growing minority who borrow amounts and types of loans that are likely to cause them repayment difficulties. This policy brief focuses on the 17 percent of 2007-08 bachelor's degree recipients who graduated with more than $30,500 in education debt. The study of these populations deserves future study. The data in this report describe the prevalence of high debt levels among bachelor's degree recipients by sector, race/ethnicity, dependency status and income.
