    I think that students should be given an updated estimate of the total debt to be accrued to complete their degree, the amount of the monthly payments, and the total amount of payments up front before they even complete enrollment.

    At the least it might prevent some building up massive debt in order to get a relatively low wage job that won't allow them to easily retire said debt, i.e. "This degree will qualify you to get a job that pays $35K - $45K, but the monthly payment on the loan is estimated to be $1,100 a month."
