Applied, professional graduates most likely to repay student loans

February 27, 2013

New research from the University of Guelph observes that university graduates in applied and professional programs are more likely to pay back their student loans than their peers in liberal arts or in similar college programs. The study found that university students are generally more likely to pay back loans than college students, despite higher university tuition fees. The research also found that, starting salaries being even, students in certain disciplines, including business, engineering, and health, were even more likely to repay their student loans than those in the liberal arts.
