The amount of debt a student incurs can have a lasting impact on a student’s life after college. Concerns about college
costs and loan debt also can affect the student’s decision to attend and persist in higher education. This page profiles
undergraduate debt for students who attended Texas public higher education institutions. A trend line illustrating the
percentage of students graduating with debt shows encouraging, although slight, decreases in recent years following
several years of increases. Students who borrow but who do not complete, as highlighted in the 2009 cohort profile, have
the burden of debt without the increased earnings potential of a degree. Also, as shown at the middle of the page, the
average debt (for students with debt) and percentage of students with debt at Texas public universities differs considerably
across institutions.
