Although a third of students graduating with a bachelor’s degree had no education debt, a study shows that the average student debt has risen due to inflation, economy, health, and field of study’s potential for expansion.
Here are some quick statistics:
- The medium loan debt for a student graduating with a bachelor’s degree has increased 5% from $18,973 to $19,999 according to the federal Department of Education’s National Postsecondary Student Aid Study.
- 10% of those graduating with a bachelor’s degree borrowed more than $40,000.
