Colleges failing in credit education

May 26, 2016 by Guest Contributor

According to a national survey by Experian, one in five college grads give their school an “F” in credit education. Additional survey highlights:

  • 69% will have student loan debt after graduation
  • 71% did not learn about credit and debt management in college
  • 55% feel like they are “going it alone” when it comes to their finances
  • 72% express concern about paying off their debt

Credit is a skill — one that can be developed through the right education. The Experian Credit Education blog has useful information to help college grads learn the basics of credit and how they can improve their credit score.
