Student Loan Center

Student loans provide many Ohioans with access to higher education to pursue their dreams of a successful and rewarding career—access they might not otherwise have. Unfortunately, our students often leave college with more debt than they can handle. Today, outstanding student debt in our country is approximately $1.41 trillion.1 In Ohio, 62 percent percent of students graduate with an average debt of $30,629.2

Attorney General Yost believes it is important to provide Ohioans with information and tools they can use to make wise borrowing decisions and be prepared for student loan repayment.
