The costs of higher education continue to rise each year and students are faced with increasing levels of tuition and fees to obtain their degrees. With research showing the benefits of post-secondary degrees, it is important for institutions to educate students on financial literacy and loan choices to ensure they are informed consumers. Using qualitative research, this study focuses on St. Cloud State University students to understand how a regional comprehensive institution can proactively work to help students through the student loan process by examining factors that contribute to student loan debt.
