This session will look beyond the headlines about an amorphous “student debt crisis” to examine which students struggle most to repay their loans and identify ways that colleges can help students manage their borrowing. The presenters will provide up-to-date national data on which types of students have the most trouble repaying their loans and discuss how colleges can analyze data on their own students to implement targeted changes. The presenters will discuss shifts in institutional practices that can help students make more informed financial decisions, and share recommendations for colleges as well as for the federal government.
