By LGIS Newsfeed | Oct 1, 2018


Olive-Harvey College, Harold Washington College and Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts In Chicago are among two-year universities in Illinois that reported borrowers defaulting on school loans they started repaying in 2014, according to a Higher Education Tribune analysis of federal data.

The analysis uses data from the U.S. Department of Education that tracks borrowers at schools receiving federal student aid where the shortest programs earn associate’s degrees. 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.
