ICI Students Best in Repayment rate

Comparing Federal Student Loan Repayment/Default Rates

Graduates of private, non-profit colleges and universities (ICI) do the best when it comes to repaying student loans in Indiana. Compared to other sectors, the difference is high, even though ICI grads enter the workforce with almost the same debt as those from 4-year public institutions (details here).  

Reasons why: 

  • Consistently high job and graduate/professional school placement rates
  • Quicker career starts
  • Individuals with employer-sought skills---problem solvers, communicators, creators/thinkers, life-long learners, team players
  • High percentage of STEM prepared graduates
  • Strong ethics---in work and life.
