in ascending order of default rate. Please consult Appendix C for a complete list of default rates for various majors. One should exercise caution, however, in drawing strong conclusions when comparing a major that has very few borrowers (say, less than 100) to another major.

The relationship between admission major and default is statistically significant.

Number of Semesters Enrolled before Departure

There is a relatively strong and statistically significant relationship between Number of Semesters Enrolled and default. As seen with Total Number of Hours Taken, the default rates of borrowers decrease as their lengths of college tenure increase and then, at a certain point, the default rates begin increasing with the increasing number of semesters. Like the Total Number of Hours Taken variable, very high default rates among Liberal Arts and Architecture students appear to be associated with the higher default rates of groups enrolled for 13 semesters or longer, despite the fact that these students also have higher than average graduation rates.
