Student Loans to Cost More in the Fall

College freshmen taking out government student loans will pay a heftier price this fall.
WASHINGTON - College freshmen taking out government student loans will pay a heftier price this fall.

Interest rates could be nearly a percent point higher than in previous years.

Under this rate, seniors with one year of school left could pay an additional $260 in interest over a 10 year period.

Analysts say freshmen, with at least four years of college ahead of them, could pay more than a thousand dollars of interest over the life of their loans.

The government student loan interest rate will be set Wednesday, based on a government bond auction.
