Abstract

This study examined the influence of student debt load on college persistence using the National Postsecondary Aid Survey of 1992- 93. The authors developed and tested a model of student persistence that included total accumulated debt and threshold of accumulated debt, and found the latter a more effective method of examining student debt response. The authors found small negative coefficients for debt and advance possible explanations for the results.
