Research on the outcomes and effectiveness of student loan counseling or the methods and materials used for delivery is scant. Four in ten high debt student loan borrowers couldn’t remember ever being counseled. A one-size-fits-all approach to delivering loan counseling is problematic. The symposia identifies factors associated with the perceived efficacy of entrance loan counseling, explores borrowers' suggested strategies to improve its effectiveness, and investigates the association of the perceived effectiveness of loan counseling with borrower expectations of student loan debt burdens and anticipated difficulty in the ability to pay off debt after graduation. Symposia papers use data from the National Student Financial Wellness Study, a survey of undergraduate students from institutions of higher education across the United States.
