Graduating high school seniors are facing a tough job market and rapidly increasing higher education costs. In Utah, approximately 45 percent of college students graduate with student loan debt according to a study from the Institute for College Access & Success. On average, students face $27,000 in student loan debt when they graduate from college, and often it goes much higher.
