Comparing Oregon colleges by cost, student debt, enrollment numbers and more: Interactive graphics

September 26th, 2014

It's been a painfully expensive 10 years for Oregon college students and their families. They've taken out more than $12 billion in federal student loans since the 2003-04 academic year.
The Oregonian is publishing an occasional series, "Era of extreme debt," examining rising student debt and the chokehold it has on students, the universities and community colleges they attend and the state's overall economy.

The accompanying charts offer vivid graphic evidence of the higher education boom that lasted much of the last decade and a dramatic slowdown at many institutions in the last two years. The chart is interactive, allowing you you to track enrollment, tuition rates, annual borrowing by students and loan default rates at 35 of the state's major colleges.
