College Loan Calculator

Private Student Loan Calculator

  • To apply for a private student loan you need to know how much to borrow.
  • With this calculator, you can enter the annual costs of attending your school and subtract the funds you already have (scholarships, financial aid and more) to find the loan amount to borrow. You may also see this amount referred to as your financial gap. Keep in mind, you can only borrow what’s needed for Qualified Higher Education Expenses1.
