SLOPE Calculator

Silver Silber pka Ua Women's Silver pinkadelic Nm pirate msv W Monza Armour Under G Micro 099 pib met Running Shoes SLOPE calculates your estimated monthly payment for student loans and compares it to your projected earnings for your career choice. The results will indicate how much you can borrow comfortably based upon your career.

Experts recommend that your student loan payments not exceed 8% of your first-year income. Many studies have also concluded that 8% is the appropriate amount. Most mortgage lenders do not permit more than 8% of your income for student loans in order to buy a house based upon their experience. If you share income and expenses with a spouse, then it is 8% of your household income.

The SLOPE calculator can determine the percentage of student loans to income for you. SLOPE (Student Loans Over Projected Earnings) is the formula to determine the percentage. In other words, it is the amount of your student loan payments divided by your projected first-year earnings or income. SLOPE also has a budget worksheet to help you plan your future income and expenses after you graduate.

The SLOPE calculator is actually several calculators in one. SLOPE determines:

  • How much interest would be capitalized on Direct Under W met Silber Shoes pinkadelic Ua pka G Armour Monza Micro Silver pirate Nm Silver pib Running 099 msv Women's Unsubsidized Loans (if you do not pay the interest while you are in school or during your grace period).

  • How much your monthly payment amounts would be (after adding in capitalized interest).

  • pinkadelic Running Women's Nm Armour Micro W G Shoes Monza pka 099 Ua pirate met Silver msv Silver Under Silber pib What percent of your income is taken up by student loan payments, based upon your career choice.

SLOPE is also fun! Your results are presented on a graph which represents the percent of student loans to projected earnings over time. As your income increases, student loans represent a lower percentage. When you pay off your loans, the percent is zero. On a graph, this is a downhill slope!

We have skiers on the slope. If you're a skier then you know there are green, blue, and black slopes in the trail guide.

  • Green is for comfortable skiing.

  • Blue is for intermediate skiers with good skills.

  • Black is for advanced skiers who like to take risks!

Your results will also be on green, blue, and black slopes. You want to be on the green slopes.

  • You choose your career from over 20 occupational categories in a dropdown box. After choosing your category, pick the specific career from a new dropdown box. Entry-level salaries are displayed with each career.

  • You enter each loan you plan to borrow by academic year and grade level. This will take a little planning. There is a chart with loan limits to help you. You also need to estimate the dates you will start school and plan to graduate (for calculating capitalized interest).

  • You may change the interest rate, loan term (years for repayment), and minimum monthly payments that are already entered. We used the maximum interest rate, standard loan term, and minimum payment requirements for new loans. We estimated them for private alternative loans.

  • You can see how much you can save on interest if you shorten the loan term or raise the minimum payments (you may have to run SLOPE with the defaults first to see what the loan term and payment amount would ordinarily be). You can also see how much lower your payments will be if you choose to pay interest on a Direct Unsubsidized Loan while you are in school and during your grace period.
