Title:Debt burden: Repaying student debt
Short Description:Provides analysis of the borrowing and repayment experiences of two cohorts of bachelor’s degree recipients one year after graduation.

This brief provides analysis of the borrowing and repayment experiences of two cohorts of bachelor’s degree recipients one year after graduation. Findings from the analysis conclude that while student loan debt has little impact on graduates’ decisions to marry or to attend graduate school, debt burden is a growing concern for students with high levels of undergraduate borrowing.
