(Neb.)-Chadron State College Scores Well On Dept. Of Education System

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 02/20/2013 08:30 AM

(CHADRON)-Chadron State College scores well in the U.S. Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency Center rating system of public and private post-secondary institutions. The college’s indicators are all near or better than the national average. President Barak Obama announced the new scoring system in his recent State of the Union address.
At CSC, the average net price, which is what students pay after grants and scholarships are subtracted from the cost to attend, was well below the national average at $9,125 per year. The college’s six-year graduation rate of 45.6% falls within the medium range of those schools that primarily award bachelors' degrees nationwide.
ChadronState’s 11.3% student loan default rate is under the national average of 13.4%, and the median level of borrowing is far below the national average at just $118.41 per month.
CSC president Dr. Randy Rhine said, “We are proud of our ability to provide students with a quality and affordable education at Chadron State College.”
Sherry Douglas, interim executive director of student services, said, “CSC has a singular focus on student success, from free tutoring to residential life programming to scholarship support. Student success is at our core.”
