For some students, paying for college could be more expensive this fall if Congress does not retroactively reach a compromise after failing to agree on a plan by the July 1 deadline to prevent interest rates on some federal student loans from doubling. Interest rates on federally subsidized Stafford student loans rose from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent on July 1. Depending on what Congress does when it takes up the issue after reconvening Monday, the increased rate might or might not be in effect for the fall semester.
