The report, which analyzed data provided by Peterson Financial Aid’s annual survey of over 1,300 colleges and universities, ranks schools and states by the amount of debt per student borrower.

Among private 4-year colleges and universities, Lyon ranks 81st nationally. Lyon also ranks 3rd among all Arkansas colleges and universities and 2nd among private Arkansas colleges and universities.
