Career College Central Summary:
Nearly one million community college students in 30 states – 8.5 percent of community college students nationally – were enrolled in schools that blocked all of their students’ access to federal student loans.
In 11 states, more than 10 percent of community college students lacked access to federal loans, and in seven states more than 20 percent lacked access.
Community college students’ access to federal student loans varied considerably by race and ethnicity. Native- American, African-American, and Latino community college students were the most likely to lack access.
Community college students who attended schools in non-urban areas were more than twice as likely to lack access as their peers who attended schools in urban areas.
