Alaska isn’t exactly a place that is full of higher education options, but surprisingly, most of the colleges in Alaska are pretty good. Not the University Of Alaska Anchorage, though. Not only is the tuition in this university very high, but there’s also a pretty low graduation rate — 31%.
Add this to the fact that most graduates only pay back 12% of their loans in the first three years after graduation and you get a very bad college.

Location: South Dakota
If you are looking to default on your loans, this might the University for you. 9.3% of graduates find themselves in that position. With a graduation rate of 33%, over 60% of the students drop out without completing their degree.

Location: Dover, Delaware (closed)
This College was so bad that has ceased existing. It used to be a liberal arts college, but in 2021 it was bought by Delaware State University. It was more costly than any other college in the state and the students who got to graduate, only 31% if you care to know, left with a debt of over $30,000.
It's not a surprise that the college ended up being purchased and closed down.
University of the Southwest
Location: New Mexico
If you thought that 30% is a bad graduation rate, wait till you hear about this University's rate: 16%. Yes, 84% of those who start attending this college drop out, and they usually do so with over $23,000 in debt.
If the odds were ever against anyone, it sounds like they were against any poor student who thought it might be a good idea to attend the University of the Southwest, New Mexico.
