Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
ICDC College was recognized by SLA as the number one proprietary college with 500-1999 borrowers in repayment with the lowest average default rate over the past three years (2005-2007) as published in their 2007 Default Prevention Honor Roll Report. The Student Lending Analytics Default Prevention Honor Roll focuses on colleges that consistently help students stay current while repaying their student loans. ICDC College was recognized as the number one proprietary school to earn an average default rate of 0.52% over the past three years (2005-2007). In addition, it should also be noted that under the Federal Family Education program (FFEL) the 2007 cohort default rate was 7.2% and in the state of California, where ICDC College is located, the rate is 6% for this same period. The cohort default rate is defined as the percentage of borrowers who enter repayment in a fiscal year and default by the end of the next fiscal year.
Joyce Scott, ICDC College's Student Loan Manager, attributes ICDC College's low default rate to educating students fully about financial aid and loan repayment. Ms. Scott states, "ICDC College is successful because we build relationships with our students to educate them on money management and the importance of good credit. Our Financial Aid department is dedicated to helping our students understand their loans and repay them in a timely fashion. In order to continue to keep our default rates low and under control for the future, we will continue to spend more time with our students to help them learn budgeting, credit and saving techniques. The due diligence efforts of both our department and borrowers creates a win-win situation for everyone."
