Normally, what's the monthly payment for the community college loan?

Hi, I know it's a pretty stupid question to ask since every situation is a different case, but I'd really like to know the average monthly payment if you have a community college loan for years.

I will need 63 credits to complete the associate degree of a major.
It doesn't have to be accurate, but I was wondering how much people with this kind of situation would pay a month.

I really appreciate your help. Thanks.

  • We were just at a financial aid appointment and for a $5,000 loan they said the payment would be around $70 a month.

  • You can use this website to estimate your monthly payments based on how much you think you will need to borrow.

  • It depends on the amount of the loan and the interest rate. A student loan company will not even quote a payment amount until it is time for repayment.

  • Depends on your community college cost per semester. The cost of CC in some states is really high compared to those in other states.

  • Also, keep in mind that you do not typically pay student loans back until AFTER you have graduated.

  • depends on your income, and your school., i get financial aid and don't have to pay a penny and get money back. you don't start paying on student loans usually until 6 months after you graduate though
