Student loans are poised to become the next big consumer debt debacle. Total outstanding student loan debt is expected to top $1 trillion this year, more than double the amount owed just five years ago. That would push it well above the amount of credit card debt outstanding, which totaled less than $800 billion last November and is down nearly 17% since peaking in 2008, according to the Federal Reserve.
