The brief, Cohort Default Rates in Context, takes a closer look at the measure of accountability that informs the government and the general public how well an institution prepares its students for loan repayment. It was commissioned as part of IHEP’s partnership with USA Funds—the nation’s largest student loan guarantor—and its 2011 Symposium on Financial Literacy and College Success at Minority-Serving Institutions.
