Itâ€™s a rather dubious honor, being named the number one state for the highest student debt.Â Thatâ€™s the title given to New Hampshire, as the nationâ€™s total student debt has now surpassed credit card debt.Â Student debt from loans averages more than 26-thousand 600 per student, and the recession combined with job instability hasnâ€™t helped, nor has the hike in tuition by for-profit colleges.Â In New Hampshire, the average student debt is more than 32-thousand 400, with 75-percent of New Hampshire students in debt.
