Estimated 2 Year Cost at Published Tuition

At the current published rates, an estimated total tuition, fees and living expense price for a 2 year associate degree at Myotherapy Institute is $64,784 for students graduating in normal time. This methodology for estimating the 2 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 $20,486 in-state net price as the basis. Applying this cost over 2 would estimate the cost of a degree at $40,972**

Example Loan Payments and Costs

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 $40,972, 100% of the estimated average net price for a two year program and paid nothing while enrolled. The total of all payments including interest would sum $50,836.86. This could be your effective total out of pocket cost of an education at Myotherapy Institute. Note that this calculation assumes you don't pay full list price tuition, are part of the reported 80% of students at this school who receive financial aid and you are paying an average annual net price of $20,486.

Affording Student Loan Payments and Post Graduation Salary

Can I afford to attend Myotherapy Institute? 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 Myotherapy Institute, 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 $50,836.86 would be needed to afford a $423.64 monthly payment in the example $40,972.00 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. You can change the terms of this example loan using the student loan calculator below.
