Student Loan Debt

40 million Americans have student loan debt. More student loans are in delinquency than mortgages, credit cards, and auto loans. In 2013-14, seven out of 10 college graduates left school owing an average of $29,400 each in student loans. Between 1980 and 2010, the average cost of a four-year public university education jumped from approximately $9,000 a year to nearly $22,000.
