National Default Rate Briefings for FY 2016 Official Cohort Default Rates

Attached is the National Default Rate Briefing for FY 2016 official cohort default rates.

The briefing is provided 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.

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.
