Hold on to your brackets, because we are now down to our Sweet 16 in The 2018 NCAA College Basketball Championship! Folks around the nation are glued to their screens watching some of the biggest wins, loses and upsets in college basketball history! Whether it’s alumni, location, or simply basketball fandom that keeps you loyal, we thought it would be pretty cool to pull the rankings on another giant aspect of college – the amount of loan debt their students tend to rack up while training for that big degree. Sure, your fav might have one of the top seats now – and heck, they may even come out as the #1 team in the country; but to find out who the real financial winners and losers are, see below for Docupop’s official student loan debt rankings for America’s Sweet 16 line-up.

Tuition cost, scholarships, and even family help all play some sort of role in the numbers above; but with the average walk-away debt (at just about any U.S. school) now clocking in at over 30k+, student loan debt is never as sweet as the teams and games we love to root for (or rival against). To learn more about possible student loan FORGIVENESS for those who qualify (oh yea, we said it) and/or to see if you could qualify for a DOE offered income driven repayment plan that could help you drastically LOWER your monthly payments, click the button below to get started and let the financial pros here at POP coach you to the big budget “W.”

Docupop is a private company, not affiliated with the Department of Education. The DOE offers several programs that may offer lower monthly loan payments for borrowers who meet the qualifications based on income and family size. Lower monthly payments may lead to longer student loan maturity periods, increasing the total amount of interest over the life of the loan. The DOE also offers programs that may forgive some or all of the borrower’s loan balance. The Public Service Loan Forgiveness program (PSLF) is based on the number of qualified payments made under the program while working full-time for a qualifying employer. Other programs require a specific number of qualifying payments and then forgive the remaining balance once those payments are completed, without any public service obligation. Depending on the type of forgiveness, any amounts forgiven may be treated as taxable income for income tax purposes, please consult your tax professional.
