Everest University in Florida, Liberty University in Virginia, and International American University of Puerto Rico - Aguadilla Campus reported the largest share of borrowers from private, nonprofit institutions who defaulted on school loans they started repaying in 2014, according to the latest disclosure from the U.S. Department of Education.

The analysis uses data that tracks borrowers at private, nonprofit schools 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, just under 1,500 institutions had 114,405 borrowers in default. The top 200 institutions accounted for nearly three-fourths of that, with 86,804 borrowers in default.
