2.Find the right amount of the monthly installment to be repaid. To calculate the amount to be paid monthly, the annual starting salary should be divided with 12, then multiply the result with 0.08 and also by 0.01. This will provide a maximum range for repayment. Graduates with a salary of $25,000 can afford to pay a monthly loan payment of not more than $167 to $208.
3.Plan and devise a repayment strategy. Many online student loan calculators are available. The student can take the help of these calculators and find the amount to be repaid every month. The standard repayment plan is generally taken up by many students. In this the entire amount is divided into equal 10 monthly installments. Flexible repayment loans are also available. Sometimes multiple loans are joined into one single loan and the repayment period is extended. In this case the rate of interest is definitely lower but the total interest calculated is actually more.
4.The students? whereabouts should be known to the lender and the school. Students move away to another place where they are employed. The change of address should be notified to the lender and the school. This is to prevent the student ?loan default. In the case of improper information, the notification of the lender does not reach the student concerned and this may lead to loan default.
