The average student debt for those getting a degree from Delaware colleges is rising at a faster rate than any other state over the ten years.
That’s according to the Institute for College Access and Success.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that between 2008 and 2016 the average college debt burden for graduates in the state has rising from around $20-thousand to just over $36-thousand.
That’s a 77 percent increase.
The Institute says that makes it the fifth highest in the country.
