Paying for college is about to get harder. Starting in July, interest rates on new student loans will rise to 6. 8%, from today's rate of 4. 7%. And interest rates on new loans that parents take out called PLUS loans will rise to 8. 5%. The bottom line is that getting your degree is getting even more expensive.

On a $20, 000 loan, students will be paying about $2500 more, just in interest payments over the life of the loan. And parents will have to put up $3, 000 more.

"This is going to prevent a lot of young adults from living independently , out of school, ur. . from being able to pay off their credit card debt, because we see credit card debt continuing to rise and adding more interest payments on to a student loan is gonna affect that. Parents are also gonna be in trouble. You are talking about supporting children in their twenties while saving and trying to retire. "

Whether you are still a student or you are a grad who's already strapped1 with payments, you should consolidate2. This will let you lock in today's lower interest rate while combining all your debts into one loan.
