To have a realistic understanding of how much it will cost to study at Armstrong State University here is an example one can consider to estimate the payment amounts one will incur with a student loan. Take a loan of $42,080 for example. This will result in a $5,240 payment to be made each year. We can assume that the interest rate is 4.5% post any refinancing or consolidation activities with a 10 years repayment plan. Then the total payment made towards the loan is $52,404 which is $10,324 in addition to the principal amount, which constitutes the interest payment made throughout the life of the loan.
