Department issues draft student loan default rates
March 03, 2022
Although the student loan payment waivers likely are having a positive impact, student loan default rates are still a concern and may be a bigger concern once the waivers end on May 1, 2022.
In a February 28 Electronic Announcement, the Department of Education released the FY2019 three-year draft cohort default rates. With the draft rates, colleges and universities can review the information and provide any corrections to make sure the final rate is accurate.
