To get a deeper look at the current situation, Scholaroo’s National Student Loan Debt Index – a report conducted to holistically analyze student debt in the U.S. – found that Georgia has some of the highest student debt in the country per borrower, ranking #2 with an average of $42K in debt per borrower. Most borrowers have between $20K and $40K in debt.
