When considering ability to pay for college, the annual cost is often discussed but it's the "all in" multi-year degree cost which matters in the end. Let's take a look at what it could really cost for four years at Brigham Young University Provo.
At the current published rates, an estimated total tuition, fees and living expense price for a 4 year bachelor's degree at BYU is $73,480 for students graduating in normal time. This methodology for estimating the 4 year cost is a straight multiple of the most recent reported annual total cost and does not factor in tuition increases during the time you're in school. It also assumes you receive no grant or scholarship aid and pay the full list price.
A potentially more accurate but less conservative estimate of a degree cost can be made by using the school's annual $11,617 in-state net price as the basis. Applying this cost over 4 would estimate the cost of a degree at $46,468**
If you end up on the "five year plan" and need an additional year to graduate, your five year cost could be as high as $91,850 or $58,085 using an average net price.
**Based on a 4 year multiple of Average Annual Net Price for students receiving grant or scholarship aid reported to the U.S. Department of Education's 2014-2015 IPEDS Survey. Financial aid is only available to those who qualify. Consult this school's net price calculator for further understanding of your potential net price.

Obviously this varies based on a number of factors - offsetting financial aid you receive, percentage of fee you pay upfront while enrolled and the interest rate on your loans. We've modeled a sample student loan based on current Stafford loan rates to give you an approximate idea.
The following are the costs for a loan if you borrowed $46,468, 100% of the estimated average net price for a four year program and paid nothing while enrolled. The total of all payments including interest would sum $57,656.13. This could be your effective total out of pocket cost of an education at Brigham Young University Provo. Note that this calculation assumes you don't pay full list price tuition, are part of the reported 50% of students at this school who receive financial aid and you are paying an average annual net price of $11,617. If you do not financially qualify for a reduced net price, your student loan payments could be significantly higher than this example.

Can I afford to attend BYU? In the end, the answer comes down a determination if you will earn enough to comfortably pay back a student loan with your post graduation salary. This is an extremely important point to consider. In order to afford student loan payments and still meet all your other costs of living, it is recommended not to borrow more than you can pay back using 10% of your monthly income earned after graduation. If you're considering attending Brigham Young University Provo, you need to carefully consider if it will be realistic to make the post graduation loan payments based on your expected salary.
Using the 10% of salary threshold, an annual income of $57,656.13 would be needed to afford a $480.47 monthly payment in the example $46,468.00 loan modeled above. You will need to determine if it is at all realistic that you will be earning this type of salary after graduation. This assumes a loan payback over 10 years.
