|The doctor of philosophy is generally the terminal degree for any field of study. It is thus unsuprising that that the data shows no doctoral completers having enrolled in higher level of studies the following year. This does not mean that there are no graduates that did enroll in other levels of study, such as in professional degrees, just that we did not track that in these data as the numbers are quite small.|
It is also not surprising that we have no information on the bulk of the graduates of doctoral programs compete in the national marketplace.

Note: The four-year bachelor’s degree mean and median debt levels reported on this site may differ from that reported by individual institutions. Many institutions report indebtedness based on the Common Data Set definition, which limits the indebtedness level reported to include only those students who entered the institution as first-time in college (FTIC) students. The inclusion of graduates who entered as transfer students may tend to lower the overall mean or median debt level because it does not include any debt that transfer students acquired while attending previous institutions outside Virginia and relatively few transfers from Virginia’s two-year colleges incur debt prior to transfer. Repayment estimates assume a standard 10-year repayment rate, and a 5% interest rate for undegraduate loans (for which multiple interest rates exist) and 6.8% for graduate and professional programs. Borrowers with federal loans may be eligible for Income Driven Repayment, which may result in lower payments.
