Additional online entrance counseling session information for Kellogg Full-Time 1Y MBA students, 2Y MBA students and 2Y MMM students

In addition to the information provided to students during the online entrance counseling session, we are providing the following information in order to help you understand all the terms and conditions of your loan as well as provide you with the necessary resources when questions arise regarding your federal student loans.

The debt of students who borrow through the Federal Stafford Loan and/or Federal Grad PLUS Loan programs vary by program of study and the amount of loan funding accepted by the student. Below you will find information regarding the repayment amounts for several debt levels, ranging from $25,000 to $200,000.

Using the debt figures in the chart below as an example, we have calculated what an average monthly payment would be using sample interest rates of 6% and 7%. The figures are based on a standard repayment term of 10 years for each loan option and do not include interest that would have accrued on any portion of the debt coming from the Unsubsidized Stafford Loan and/or the Grad PLUS Loan.
