slides: See How Worcester Colleges and Universities Rank for Student Debt

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

 

The Project on Student Debt recently released its "Student Debt and the Class of 2012" report, which showed that Massachusetts ranked #12 for the state with the highest average student debt.

The report further broke down information by schools that reported yearly data themselves, and included such information as tuition and enrollment, as well as the percentage of students receiving Pell Grants as well as non-federal grants.  (Not all schools self-reported the data and those did not are not listed on the slideshow).

See how colleges and universities fared in Worcester BELOW.
