The U.S. Department of Education is reporting the default rate has risen nearly two percent from 2008.

The department attributes rising tuition costs, low graduation rates and poor job prospects to the inability of students to pay.

Some Kent States students say they had a positive experience while others are concerned about paying them off in the future.

For student loan assistance, students can visit the university’s financial aid office in the Michael Schwartz Center.
