Office of Student Financial Assistance (ED), Washington, DC.
During a symposium on ensuring student loan repayment, writers were recording best practices and ideas for improvements in student loan programs. The chapters of this handbook are organized in the same way that the symposium discussions occurred. Chapter 1 summarizes recent trends in student loan defaults and the general themes that emerged during the symposium. Chapters 2 through 4 capture the nest practices and creative ideas the symposium experts recommended. Chapter 2 focuses on the period before a student enrolls in college, while chapter 3 looks at the period between enrollment and repayment, and chapter 4 addressees loan repayment. Chapter 5 summarizes the major symposium theme for improving the student loan programs. Specific tips and program examples are highlighted to emphasize the efforts of given institutions. An appendix contains an annotated bibliography of 22 sources. (SLD)
