Student Debt and the Class of 2007

  • October 22, 2008

In our third annual report on student debt trends, we find that student debt levels continue to rise overall, with considerable variation across states and colleges. The debt data used here is reported voluntarily by colleges for each graduating class. See for an interactive map of state-by-state averages and campus-by-campus data, including the average debt of graduating seniors, percentage of graduates with debt, tuition and fees, and the percentage of students receiving Pell Grants.

Pew is no longer active in this line of work, but for more information, visit the Project on Student Debt Web site or visit the The Project on Student Debt on
