Before you borrow, find out how to calculate expected payments. Use our Loan Repayment calculator to judge how much your average monthly payment will be. Of course, until you start repayment, these amounts are only estimates.
Repayment requirements are different based on the types of loans you have: Federal loans or State-Based loans offered by KHESLC.
