Student Loans

To gauge a more realistic picture of what it really could cost you out of pocket to go to Mayland Community College, we've modeled a ten year student loan with an original principal value of $11,618. The loan balance of $11,618 is a two year multiple of the $5,809 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 $126 could be required to pay off your student loan. The total of all payments including interest would sum $15,130.30.

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 5.5%.

Example Loan $11,618
Stafford Loan Interest Rate 5.5%
Time to Pay Off Student Loan 10 years
Example Monthly Payment $126.09
Total Interest Paid $3,512.30
Sum of All Loan Payments $15,130.30

Student Loan Affordability

In order to afford student loan payments and still meet all your other costs of living, it is recommended not to borrow more than you can pay back using 10% of your monthly income earned after graduation. If you're considering attending Mayland Community College, should consider if it will be realistic to make the post graduation loan payments based on your expected salary.

Using the 10% of salary threshold, an annual income of $15,130.30 would be needed to afford a $126.09 monthly payment in the example $11,618.00 loan modeled above. This assumes a repayment over 10 years. You can change the terms of this example loan using the student loan calculator below.
