The following table uses the above assumptions to estimate debt under various scenarios. These figures reflect no early loan payments, the standard six-month grace period post-graduation, and interest. We assume scholarship amounts remain constant and do not scale with tuition increases. We do, however, assume that the percent under the school's estimated cost of living scales with annual increases.

Hover over a debt-financed price to see monthly payments and cumulative payments over the life of the loans.
