Student Loans will DOUBLE STARTING THIS MONDAY!

Student Loans will DOUBLE STARTING THIS MONDAY!

Summary:

  • Lawmakers fail to reach student loan deal before July 4 break
  • With the current, 3.4 percent interest rate on Stafford loans — the most popular funding for college students – set to expire on July
  • The higher rates would add about $3,000 to the total interest on a $23,000 student loan repaid over 10 years
  • Some undergraduates currently pay 3.4 percent or some pay 6.8 percent, depending on their loan structures and many students borrow at both rates. Graduate students and parents borrow from the government at 7.9 percent interest under the current system.
