Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed loan volume and default data for lending institutions participating in the Supplemental Loans for Students (SLS) program.

GAO found that: (1) the annual volume of new SLS program loans was $711 million in fiscal year (FY) 1987, $2 billion in FY 1988, and $2.1 billion in FY 1989; (2) the 10 largest lenders had a cumulative total of about $250 million in loan defaults from FY 1987 through FY 1989; and (3) 5 of the 10 largest lenders accounted for 40 percent of the SLS loans made and 60 percent of the total amount in defaulted loans over the 3-year period.
