Low student debt
Wellesley is widely recognized as one of the top 10 colleges in the country for students graduating with the least amount of debt. For Wellesley students who graduated in 2015, the average student debt for all four years was $12,500. By contrast, TICAS* reported a national average of $31,000 for the Class of 2015. Other sources report a higher national average. In any case, Wellesley compares very favorably.
