Never attend a for-profit college
Earlier this month, the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity released a report on what, precisely, is driving the massive wave of defaults on student loans. By cross-comparing federal student loan data with tax information provided by individual borrowers going back several decades, the report's authors found that the current crisis in student loan defaults is concentrated largely among "non-traditional" borrowers at for-profit colleges. These are students who turned to proprietary schools during and after the recession, and who emerged with hefty debt and poor job prospects regardless of whether they'd attained their degrees.
These Are the Worst Colleges in America
Many of these colleges are dropout factories, where students are unlikely to graduate and prices, debt levels, and student loan default rates are high.
The list features eleven private for-profit colleges and nine private non-profit institutions. No public universities are represented.
