Student Loans

To gauge a more realistic picture of what it may really cost you out of pocket to go to Kansas State University, we've modeled a ten year student loan with an original principal value of $57,408. The loan balance of $57,408 is a four year multiple of the $14,352 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 $599 could be required to satisfy your student loan.

Please note that financial aid is not guaranteed and is only available for qualifying students. Federal Student Loans are not grants and must be repaid with interest. The current Stafford loan interest rate is 4.7%.
