Indiana U.: students taking out fewer loans

– Indiana University says fewer students are borrowing money to pay for their education this school year.

IU says the number of undergraduates who took out federal loans in 2013-14 decreased by 12 percent from the previous school year across its seven campuses. The money they borrowed also dropped.

The college credits the 2012 creation of an Office of Financial Literacy designed to raise awareness of the risk of excessive borrowing. Business practices also were changed to make the cost of student debt clear.

IU says the amount borrowed by students fell by $34 million this academic year.

IU officials believe students are finding ways to hold down overall expenses and are declining loans they don’t need to pay college and living costs.
