Important Things to Consider:

    • What is a realistic projection of your starting salary and future earnings potential?
    • What other loans or obligations do you already have or are likely to take on in the near future? How much of your future income is already committed to repaying these obligations?
    • What are your lifestyle needs after graduation? Think about how much of your projected income will be needed to support your lifestyle.
    • After considering your lifestyle needs and current obligations, can you afford to borrow from an alternative loan program?
    • Can you make any changes to your lifestyle needs and current obligations to free up additional funds for loan repayment? Think about debt management strategies that might help you better manage your resources.
    • Review repayment options. Is loan consolidation a possible solution?
