Plan adds to CIA's successful financial aid efforts
President Obama’s recent student loan plan impacts both state and private college students and according to CIA’s Director of Financial Aid, Martin Carney current junior and senior CIA students will experience the plan’s benefits as early as this year.
“Even though CIA graduates have consistently ranked as having one of the lowest default rates in the nation, the Obama plan will provide tools to this year’s graduating students that will help with student loan management,” said Carney. CIA’s student default rate is 4.9 percent, which is well below the national average of 7.4 percent.
