Gettysburg College was praised in a Feb. 21 abc 27 report on college debt and graduation rates.
From abc 27:
Most state and private schools in central Pennsylvania received an "A" for their graduation versus student-loan default rate. Millersville, Shippensburg and Messiah College had graduation rates in the mid-to-high 70 percent range, while their student-loan default rates were in the low single digits.
Gettysburg College was among the best in this category. Tuition for 2011 was $27,591 and students borrowed an average of $19,395. Their graduation rate topped out at 85 percent, compared to zero defaults on student loans.
The Wall Street Journal pointed out that the federal figures still need to be tweaked so a full comparison can be made. Another report is expected to come out later this year.
