The purpose of this study is to analyze the debt load of college-aged students. We aim to identify those factors that explain variations in debt. Our explanatory variable of interest is financial literacy. That is, our objective is to determine if debt loads vary with financial knowledge. This research is significant due to the growing levels of consumer debt among college students.
