Low debt distinction
Northeastern’s average student loan debt is the lowest among Illinois public universities and fourth-lowest among all Illinois colleges and universities, according to a study released by The Student Loan Report. According to the report, only 53 percent of Northeastern’s 2017 graduating class incurred debt, with the average graduate owing $8,384.07. That’s well below the state’s $17,949 average. This report uses the same data as many other high-profile rankings but breaks down the debt by average graduate, not the average borrower.
