Prepayment Calculator

Prepayment Calculator

Based on your financial situation, you can choose an in-school or deferred repayment option during our application process. A deferred repayment option means you are not required to make payments while you are enrolled in school at least half-time. While this option gives you flexibility while in school, it does add to your overall loan cost. Making $25 fixed monthly payments while enrolled in school and during your grace period can lower your overall loan cost. Borrowers can make a payment anytime without penalty.

Tip

Prepaying your student loan is a smart way to reduce your loan costs.

IMPORTANT FACTS: This calculator provides estimates intended for use only as a planning guide. Results are based on a standard repayment plan, where you pay a fixed amount every month for a set number of months, based on your loan term, the prepayment scenario you input above, and assumes:

  • A fixed interest rate and does not account for a variable interest rate;
  • Your loan is currently in repayment; and
  • A minimum monthly payment amount of $50.00.

We do not guarantee the calculator's accuracy or applicability to your circumstances, and we encourage you to consult a qualified professional for assistance in analyzing your overall financial situation.

Current Balance

For loans in repayment, the current balance is your outstanding loan amount as of today.

For loans just entering repayment, the current balance is the original principal loan amount disbursed, any capitalized and accrued interest, and all applicable fees.

This information can be found online or on your paper statement.

Interest Rate

This information can be found online or on your paper statement.

Please note that this calculator does not adjust for variable rates which may increase or decrease your monthly payment when the rate changes.

For a variable-rate loan, you pay the same amount every month for the period between potential interest rate changes. When interest rates change, your monthly payment may increase or decrease accordingly.

Years Left to Pay Back

This is the length of time remaining to repay your loan. Typical repayment terms for private student loans range from 15 to 20 years. Terms may vary by loan type or lender.
