National Financial Aid Data For Future Reference
National Financial Aid Data For Future Reference
The Student Loan Report regularly publishes both news and reports regarding higher education. Recently, we published a report covering the average student loan debt at graduation for colleges across the country.

I thought this report would be especially helpful for your students trying to decide where to attend college.

It is useful for comparing how much debt the average student is walking away with at various colleges throughout the nation. There’s data from over one thousand schools in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

In our research, we’ve found that listed college costs don’t always tell the whole story when it comes to paying for college. Having this data can help students figure out how much they may truly end up paying in the long run.

Here’s the link to the full report:

By the way, you may be interested to hear that colleges in Alabama collectively ranked #23 nationally in terms of low student debt per graduate. It’s also worth mentioning there’s more national data found at the bottom of the report.

Since college and stress typically go hand-in-hand, it's important for high school seniors to learn stress coping skills before starting college. The guide explains stress management, how college lifestyle impacts stress, and the relationship between stress and anxiety.

Stress in college students

College is an exciting time, full of new challenges that continually drive you to expand your horizons. While some of these experiences can be thrilling, others may simply leave you feeling stressed. In fact, many college students feel stress while going to school. Only 1.6 percent of undergraduates reported that they felt no stress in the last 12 months, according to the National College Health Assessment (NCHA).

Being able to manage stress is crucial for your academic success and personal well-being in college. Luckily, this guide from Western Governors University will provide you with information about how to recognize different kinds of stress, various sources of stress for college students, as well as tips for coping in a healthy way. If you are able to identify and understand stress, you will be able to ensure your time as a student is rewarding and enjoyable.
