National Survey of 1,000 Adults
Conducted July 13-14, 2013

1* What would do more to help college students—lowering tuition costs or giving easier access to student loans?

2* Has the availability of student loans helped increase the cost of college tuition?

3* Should student loan interest rates be the same as for regular loans or should government subsidies be used to keep the costs lower?

4* Is it better for students to attend school without working for four years and graduate with a lot of student loan debt or better to work and graduate in six to eight years with no student debt?

5* If a good student comes from a wealthy household, should the student receive federal government loans or should the student’s family provide the financing?

6* Should student loans be limited to cover the cost of a community college, or should the loans cover the cost of any college the student chooses, even It’s more expensive?
