Email News Alerts

Are you or someone in your family facing heavy student loan debt?

Recent graduates left college with an average of $19,646 in student loan obligations, according to a study by the Project on Student Debt.

That was up 8 percent from a year earlier, while average starting salaries rose only 4 percent from the previous year, the study found.

That means the debt that graduates are carrying is growing faster than their initial chances to earn the money to repay it.
