The average months to complete apply to full-time students. Additionally, if program length is reported in contact hours, then the time literally represents time with an instructor. Alternatively, credit hours approximate instructional time, but are not inclusive of total time spent by students in learning.

The cost details offer you comparisons to the costs of similar programs available in your context group. However, schools offering similar programs often have slightly different times to complete, and therefore we have grouped all programs that are 6 or fewer months, over 6 to 12 months, over 12 to 18 months, and more than 18 months.

Context and trends: Repayment Rate
How much progress do you think you'll be able to make towards paying down your college loans seven years after leaving school? In our research, we discovered that a surprisingly large number of students don't default on their loans, but also aren't making progress in paying down their principal amount. The percentages here count alumni who have decreased their loan amounts by at least $1.
Context and trends: are the loan default rates as small as possible?
The default rate is the percentage of students who are already delinquent on their loans within three years of leaving the school. If a school has a high default rate, that sends an alarm out that the students' educations are not sufficient to earn enough to repay those loans. Keep in mind that a low default rate may be more important than loan amounts in predicting your future success.
