• Student loan interest rates to double


    CENTRAL FLORIDA - College students will have to start paying more on their student loans.

    Congress left for the Fourth of July holiday Friday without a solution to stop interest rates from doubling on student loans Monday.

    Interest rates will go from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent.

    That would add about $3,000 to the interest $23,000 loan repaid over 10 years.
