Student Loan Repayment

The SSTAR Lab partnered with Arnold Ventures and six research universities to share data on student loan repayment in order to support ongoing efforts to monitor, assess, and improve loan outcomes of former students. The resulting report highlights key repayment statistics at these universities including undergraduate and graduate students’ original and outstanding balances, participation in income-driven repayment plans, loan default rates, and paid in full rates. The report also estimates repayment rates used in College Scorecard and proposed in the PROSPER Act and the College Affordability Act.
