The loan balance of $80,512 is a four year multiple of the $20,128 average net price. This is a estimate of what you could owe upon graduation if you were to qualify for average financial aid and what a degree really may cost. Should you not qualify for financial aid, you may owe significantly more when you graduate. Based on these assumptions, a monthly repayment of $768 could be required to satisfy your student loan.
