Student loans are an important part of any financial aid package. However, they can be quite complex to understand. To help you out, we have modeled what a ten-year student loan would look like with a balance of $0.

This balance is calculated by multiplying the average net price of studying at Prairie State College for a year by four. Our calculations therefore estimate what you would owe if you qualified for federal financial aid and used student loans to finance a large amount of your education.

We calculate that, using the Stafford Loan interest rate of 4.5%, you would pay $714 per month for a period of ten years. Ten years reflects the normal length of a federal student loan. In total, you would have paid $17,302.29 in interest, and the sum of all your loan payments would be $34259.28 once your loan had been paid off.

This projection is not relevant if you finance your education using private loans, which typically come with higher interest rates.
