Subject: Briefing on National Default Rates

Attached is the “Briefing on National Default Rates” in Microsoft Power Point (PPT) format and Portable Document Format (PDF). The PDF file requires 4.0 or greater of the Free Adobe Acrobat Reader software.

Important Note: Some schools have a small number of borrowers entering repayment. At other schools, only a small portion of the student body takes out student loans. In such cases, the cohort default rate should be interpreted with caution.
