In Iowa, debt goes down as university aid goes up, but the future remains unclear as tuition increases loom - Vanessa Miller, The Gazette

As the total amount of financial aid awarded to students at Iowa’s public universities continues to climb, the percentages of students graduating with debt seesaws down, as does the average indebtedness of those who do leave campus owing money. Those trends, outlined in a new Board of Regents report, are noteworthy as state and federal support for student financial aid and for the universities’ general education budgets is declining. They also come as some education experts note aid will have to continue increasing if Iowa’s public universities are going to keep raising tuition.
