Student loan rates feared to double

June 28, 2013

Federal student loan interest rates are set to double on Monday.

Unless Congress agrees to a last-minute deal, the rate for federal subsidized Stafford loans, which currently sits at 3.4 percent, will double to 6.8 percent.

The interest hike will affect all new student loans — existing loans will keep their current rates.
