Sum of Loan Payments


To have a realistic understanding of how much it will cost to study at California Lutheran University (CLU) here is an example one can consider to estimate the payment amounts one will incur with a student loan. Take a loan of $106,320 for example. This will result in a $13,240 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 $132,404 which is $26,084 in addition to the principal amount, which constitutes the interest payment made throughout the life of the loan.
