Clinton Campaign Launches College Cost Calculator

Over the last few months, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has voiced comprehensive plans to reduce the amount of debt for college students from low-income families. Yesterday, the Clinton campaign launched an interactive online tool aimed at showing voters how much college would cost under her higher education plans.

It is estimated that 40 million Americans have student loan debt. Through the college calculator, borrowers can input information, such as current student loan balance and how many years are left on the loan, to find out how much they would save if Clinton were elected. Similarly, prospective college students can use a separate portal to calculate the cost of their tuition at a two-year community college, four-year in-state and out-of-state institutions.

The college calculator is available on the Hillary Clinton site.
