At Culpeper Cosmetology Training Center in Virginia, 34.5 percent of borrowers who started repaying student loans in 2014 defaulted on those loans by the end of 2016, according to the latest disclosure from the U.S. Department of Education.

The analysis uses data that tracks borrowers at publicly controlled colleges and universities receiving federal student aid. The 2014 cohort accounts for borrowers who entered repayment on selected federal loans in the given fiscal year and defaulted before the end of the second fiscal year.   

Altogether, nearly 1,600 public institutions had 2.7 million borrowers in repayment in the 2014 cohort. And 306,553 of them were in default – a default rate of 11.28 percent, which is slightly below the national rate of about 11.5 percent.
