NH Tops List Of College Student Debt
A new report says New Hampshire is again the top state for college student debt.
The Institute for College Access & Success says students who graduated from New Hampshire colleges owed an average of nearly $32,500 in loans. The California-based organization released its 2011 list late last week.
The report says Vermont students had the eighth-highest debt load, at more than $28,000. The national average was $26,600 dollars.
Matthew Reed, program director for the institute, told the Eagle Tribune that New Hampshire has been at the top of the list for all seven years the study has been done.
