Title:Analysis of preliminary FY2009 2-year cohort default rates
Short Description:According to a May 20, 2011 announcement by the US Department of Education, the preliminary draft FY2009 2-year cohort default rate is 8.9%, up from 7.0% for FY2008 and 6.7% for FY2007.
Annotation:According to a May 20, 2011 announcement by the US Department of Education, the preliminary draft FY2009 2-year cohort default rate is 8.9%, up from 7.0% for FY2008 and 6.7% for FY2007. Official default rates won’t be published until September, after colleges have had a chance to correct errors in the data, but national aggregate statistics generally do not demonstrate much movement from draft to final publication. This is the highest 2-year cohort default rate since 1997, but still well below the 22.4% peak in 1992 that lead to passage of stricter controls on college eligibility for federal student aid as part of the Higher Education Amendments of 1992.
