Ohio Student Debt Increases

Oct 18, 2012

A report by the Project on Student Debt shows Ohio students who borrowed for college and earned a bachelor's degree last year graduated with an average of nearly 29-thousand dollars in debt.

 That is the seventh highest in the nation and a 3.5-percent increase over 2010. Ohio's average is nearly 8 percent higher than the national average. 68 percent of the state's graduates left school with at least some student-loan debt last year.
