Why does it take longer to repay my student loans?
Educational costs and your degree level correlate closely to how long it takes to repay student debt-attending a pricier school or pursuing postgraduate degrees comes with more costs, which can mean taking out more student loans. And these higher balances typically take longer to repay.
