How to Use the Calculator

Our student loan calculator shows you a breakdown of:

  • Monthly interest: The total amount you’ll be paying on interest each month.
  • Monthly principal and interest: The total amount you’ll be paying each month, including the principal AND the interest.
  • Total interest paid over the course of the loan: The total amount you’ll be paying on interest over the course of the loan.
  • Total loan repayment: The total amount you’ll be paying on the loan.

All you need to do is enter the values specific to your loan in the fields below and hit calculate.

It is assumed that the interest rate will remain the same over the course of the loan AND that the loan will be repaid in equal monthly installments.

This calculator doesn’t factor for inflation.
