To gauge a more realistic picture of what it may really cost you out of pocket to go to Ridgewater College, we've modeled a ten year student loan with an original principal value of $17,174. The loan balance of $17,174 is a two year multiple of the $8,587 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 $178 could be required to satisfy your student loan.
