Alabama’s Ranking for Student Loan Debt
A report released by The Institute for College Access and Success places Alabama ninth out of the top ten “High Debt” states with the average student loan debt at $31,000.
Unfortunately, Alabama is also one of only five states where the average school debt exceeds family income.
In addition, a new survey by Student Loan Debt Crisis states that approximately 20% of student-loan borrowers cannot afford their next payment and 44% state it will be a challenge. Even worse, more than 65% of borrowers have less $1,000 in their bank account.
