Repay your loan: Sample repayments

The following are sample monthly loan repayments under a standard 10-year repayment plan.

A standard repayment plan is the one in which a borrower pays the least interest overall. The chart displays repayments at four typical interest rates: 4.66%, 5.0%, 6.21%, and 7.21% for loan amounts in $5,000 increments up to $30,000. For example, if a student borrows $20,000 at 6.21%, the payment for principal and interest is $224 a month for 10 years.
