Poll: Stafford loan interest rate increase, students consider cheaper education alternatives

Unless Congress acts quickly to stop it from doubling, the federal subsidized Stafford loan interest rate is scheduled to revert back to 6.8 percent on July 1 from the current 3.4 percent, affecting millions of students across America.

Effects on college students

In an effort to better understand how current students would react to this change, we at CengageBrain.com, the premier destination for purchasing discount college textbooks and part of Cengage Learning, polled 500 college students on everything from the drastic actions they would take if rates increase, to how it might affect their voting in upcoming elections. Shockingly, 23 percent of the students we polled said that they would consider dropping out of their school if rates doubled, and 66 percent of students that were planning on getting an advanced degree said they would be less able to pursue graduate school. And, the effects don’t stop there.

Check out our infographic for the complete results on how increased student loan rates would impact students’ education.
