Nevadans have less student loan debt than most of US, study says

Nevada usually finds itself at the bottom of national education rankings.

But a new study examining student loan debt in America paints a more positive picture.

Nevada residents carry less student loan debt than a majority of Americans, according to a new report, “Debt in America,” from the Urban Institute. The median student loan debt in Nevada is $14,218 — a debt load that’s greater than that of only two other states: Utah and Wyoming.
