The Effect of Student Debt on Priorities and Decisions after Graduation
In our research project, we collected data to see what people have prioritized post-graduation no matter their age and what they believe should be prioritized. This study evaluated whether or not student loan debt is the main deciding factor in going to college or choosing a non-traditional path. We evaluated traditional students and non-traditional students' first priority after graduating from high school and if it is not school, then what their first priority was and determine what is keeping the student from attending college. Data was solicited by a direct link to a survey that asked about people's demographics, priorities after graduation, and choices towards debt.
