10. Student Loan Default Rate

Data retrieved from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Student Loan Data System

FY 2016 FY 2015 FY 2014
Default Rate 4.8% 4.7% 4.4%
No. in Default 215 201 186
No. In Repay 4,403 4,207 4,152
Enrollment figures 23,194 22,534 21,678
Percentage calculation 18.9 18.6 19.1

ENROLLMENT: To provide context for the Cohort Default Rate (CDR) data, USDOE included enrollment data (students enrolled at any time during the year) and a corresponding percentage (borrowers entering repayment divided by that enrollment figure). While there is no direct relationship between the timing of when a borrower entered repayment (October 1 through September 30) and any particular enrollment year, for the purpose of these data, we have chosen to use the academic year ending on the June 30 prior to the beginning of the cohort year (e.g., FY 2016 CDR Year will use 2014-2015 enrollment).   Current Date: 01/28/2020
