Frequently Asked Questions
In simple terms, the SLDR measures the percentage of an institution’s borrowers who fail to pay back their student loans. These percentages are called cohort default rates, or CDRs.
The U.S. Department of Education releases updated CDRs each year. To calculate CDRs, the Department of Education 1) identifies the number of borrowers who entered repayment on certain federal loans during a given fiscal year, then 2) identifies which of those borrowers defaulted on their loans during a 3-year period.
For example, the most recent default rate available is for the 2016 fiscal year. This default rate includes borrowers who entered repayment in 2016 but defaulted on their loans in 2016, 2017, or 2018. https://ifap.ed.gov/sites/default/files/attachments/2019-06/CDRMasterFile.pdf
SLDRs are a useful indicator of how well an institution’s students are doing after they leave an institution. For example, a high SLDR may indicate that an institution’s students are unable to find employment following graduation, or had to take on more debt to complete their program than they are able to pay back. Students may also drop out partway through a program and struggle to pay back the money they borrowed while they were enrolled.
Students at University of Massachusetts Global defaulted at a significantly lower rate than the nationwide average: UMass Global’s default rate is 5.2%, while the nationwide average is 10.1%.
UMass Global's default rate is also lower than the default rate for all private non-profit institutions (6.6%) and for institutions in California (8.7%).
