Student Loan Repayment Rates

Repayment rates refer to the percentage of loan dollars that have been repaid by former students who attended a specific post-secondary institution. The higher the number, the better the repayment rate result – this is a good indication of a student’s ability to obtain employment following graduation which in turn impacts a student’s ability to repay their loans.

Rates below 60% are considered high risk, indicating that the student’s ability to find employment in their chosen area of study may be more difficult, or, employment may be at a lower income level.

This information is provided to help students make more informed decisions about the post-secondary education investment they are making – and helps to support career decision making.
