Farmingdale State College is #2 in SUNY, and #4 among public colleges and universities in the state, when it comes to lowest student-loan debt at time of graduation, says LendEDU in its just-published 2019 Student Loan Debt by School by State Report. With an average student-loan debt of $24,531 upon graduation, the College is also listed at #10 among all state schools.

"Farmingdale graduates receive an excellent return on their investment. Our students graduate with far fewer student loans, while their salary levels are in the very top tier among SUNY institutions," says Farmingdale State College President John S. Nader. "FSC is one of the very best values in higher education, and a leader in affordability. Our continued enrollment growth this fall indicates that news of our success is spreading."

On average, Farmingdale students borrowed $4500 less than students at other public college and universities. In addition, FSC graduates first-year earnings exceed the amount of federal student loan debt they carry.

The LendEDU report is an in-depth analysis of the most recent student-loan debt figures at hundreds of colleges and universities across the U.S.
