See How RI Colleges and Universities Rank for Student Debt

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

 

The Project on Student Debt recently released its "Student Debt and the Class of 2012" report, which showed that Rhode Island ranked #5 for the state with the highest average student debt.

The report further broke down information by schools that reported yearly data themselves, and included such information as tuition and enrollment, as well as the percentage of students recieving Pell Grants as well as non-federal aid.  

See how colleges and universities ranked in Rhode Island below.  (Not all schools self-reported the data and those did not are not listed on the slideshow).

According to the Institute’s Project on Student Debt, Rhode Island has the fifth highest student debt in the country, but what about the state's individual institutions? Check out the slides below to see the average debt graduates accrued at Rhode Island colleges and universities.
