Student Loan Debt Rankings - School Level | 2017

student loan debt rankings school level

Introduction

Note: These rankings are part of LendEDU’s Student Loan Debt by School by State Report. These rankings were created using the aggregate data from our full report.

According to College Board, for the 2016-17 school year, college students at in-state public schools paid, on average, $20,090, up 2.6% from $19,570 in 2015-16.

Furthermore, college students at non-profit private institutions paid, on average, $45,370 last school year, up 3.4% from $43,870 in 2015-16.

As a whole, the cost of going to a 4-year college is rising.

In our research, we found that the majority of students will use student loan debt to pay for college. Student loans are offered primarily by the Department of Education and by a number private banks and lenders.

Over the last decade, the rising costs of college has increased the gap between financial aid and cost of attendance. As a result, more students are using student debt to fund their higher educations.

As part of our Student Loan Debt By School By State Report, we decided to rank our nation’s colleges and universities to see which schools were giving graduates the most and the least student loan debt.

We licensed the financial aid data from Peterson’s annual financial aid survey. Peterson’s requested this data on a voluntary basis, and we found 1,161 institutions provided enough data to be included in our analysis. All of the data below was self reported by the colleges and universities. We did not verify the accuracy of the data provided by the colleges and universities.

LendEDU’s Student Loan Debt By School By State Report was created using the newest Peterson’s financial aid data. Peterson’s released the new data for the Class of 2016 at the start of August 2017. LendEDU is the first organization to aggregate and analyze this data for the Class of 2016.

In the following tables Debt refers to the average debt per borrower from the Class of 2016 at the respective schools. Change refers to the percent difference in average debt per borrower from​ the Class of 2015 to the Class of 2016 at the respective schools.
