Most students need to take out federal student loans in order to pay for college. But how might borrowing for college affect your bottom line after graduation?
Use this calculator to get an idea of what you may earn in your first year after graduation, and how much of those earnings may go toward repaying your loans.
The calculator provides comparative information about the median salaries and student loan debts of recent graduates from certain programs at certain two- and four-year public and for-profit institutions within Texas.
