Organization:The Institute for College Access and Success
Short Description:The sixth annual report on the cumulative student loan debt of recent graduates from four-year public and private nonprofit colleges
Annotation:From the report: "We estimate that two-thirds of college seniors who graduated in 2010 had student loan debt, with an average of $25,250 for those with debt, up five percent from the previous year. The five percent increase in average debt at the national level is similar to the average annual increase over the past few years. State averages for debt at graduation from four-year colleges ranged widely in 2010, from $15,500 to $31,050. High-debt states are concentrated in the Northeast and Midwest, while low-debt states are mainly in the West. Average debt continues to vary even more at the campus level than at the state level, from $950 to $55,250"
