The Project on Student Debt, April 2011


Issue Briefing focusing on borrowing by community college students. About 9% of American students attend colleges that do not participate in the federal student loan program. Howver, minority students are over-represented at these schools: 16.4% of African American and 18.5% of Native American students attend non-participating institutions. "Barring access to federal loans does not keep students from borrowing – it just keeps them from borrowing federal loans."
