(CNN)– College Debt is rising, according to a new study on most college campuses, debt is higher than ever.

The average undergraduate student borrower is facing $30,100 in loans, up 4% compared to the year before, according to a report from The Institute of College Access and Success released this week.

 That means they’ll be paying about $300 a month over 10 years.

The report might underestimate the average debt. It excludes students who went to for-profit colleges, because so few of those institutions report relevant data. But a majority of for profit students do borrow money.
