Earlier this year, The Student Loan Report published a report detailing which colleges, broken down by state, graduated students with the least student loan debt on average. This is a follow up on that report, taking a different angle this time around.

Instead of looking at individual states, we decided to look at the whole picture, or the whole country.

Below, we ranked all of the colleges in the United States according to average student loan debt per graduate, highlighting which colleges offer the more affordable and advantageous programs from a financial viewpoint. Furthermore, we broke the data out according to institution type, analyzing private and public colleges separately.

In this report, you’ll be able to compare private and public universities as a whole in terms of affordability and cost. Additionally, you’ll be able to see how a particular school stacks up against the entire nation, all in terms of debt at the end of four years.

When looking through these data tables, try searching the name of a particular four-year, public or private institution to see how it ranks against the country in terms of student loan debt per graduate.

Methodology

Similar to the state breakdown of schools by student debt per graduate, all of the data in this report came from Peterson’s Financial Aid dataset for the Class of 2016. In this dataset, all data is reported by the colleges themselves and published by Peterson’s.

In order to find out which schools had high levels of debt per graduating student, we simply multiplied the average student loan debt per borrower by the percentage of graduates with student loans. The result of the calculation is the average student loan debt per graduate, accounting for both borrowers and non-borrowers.

Three school rankings were created, and all were based on average student loan debt per graduate. Schools with a low student debt per grad value were ranked higher on the list. First, all schools in the United States were ranked together for a national overall ranking. Second, public schools were ranked together for a national public school ranking. Finally, all private schools were ranked by the same metrics for a national private school ranking.

To be included in this report, schools were required to have at least 100 graduates in the Class of 2016. They also needed to be private or public, four-year programs.
