College admissions directors were asked how much debt they thought was "reasonable" for a student to accrue in four years. Over a third of public college directors said that between $10,000 and $20,000 of debt was okay, while almost half of private college directors stated that $20,000 to $30,000 of debt was a reasonable amount to expect for students.

Students should be discouraged from accumulating debt. Zero is the reasonable debt for a college graduate.
