More than half UT Arlington students use loans for tuition
North Texas college students are calling on lawmakers to keep their interest rates from rising, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. At UT Arlington, 18,047 students relied on the loans in 2010-11. That's more than half of the 32,000 or so students who were enrolled there that fall. UT Arlington will have about as many or slightly more loan recipients this year, said Karen Krause, executive director of financial aid, scholarships and veterans affairs.
