Pennsylvania Students in Class of 2011 Have Second-Highest Debt in the Nation

Pennsylvania’s college graduates in the class of 2011 have an average student debt of $29,959. That’s good for second highest in the nation. Only grads from New Hampshire come out of their undergrad careers with more debt on their shoulders. A study from the Institute of College Access & Success also indicates that 70 percent of 2011 graduates in the Keystone State that have debt stapled to their diplomas. Only six states in the union have a higher rate. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to take this call… my loan collectors are blowing up my cell. [TICAS]
