Select the month and year you started or will start college.
Select the number of years you will be enrolled in college.
Select the maximum number of loans you plan to take out each year.
For each year, enter the loan variables for each student loan you did or will take out for that year (tap the info icons in the column headings for specific instructions) and then check the "Add" checkbox to include each entered loan in the calculations.
Once you have entered all loans, tap the "Calculate Student Loans" button.
You can view and/or print the loans totals and repayment schedule for all loans combined, or for each loan separately (loan drop-down menu located below the calculate button).
While you can enter both federal loans and private loans for financial planning purposes, please be aware that you cannot consolidate private loans with federal loans, nor can you consolidate your Parent's PLUS loan with your own federal loans.
Scrolling & Shrinking:
In order to scroll the calculator vertically you will need to swipe just outside of the calculator's dark-blue border, or use the window's far right-hand scroll bar, whichever is applicable to your device.
If the top section of the calculator becomes to tall for your viewport, tapping in the "Enter a problem..." field should reset the top section to its original height.
The Algebra Calculator is the only calculator on the site that I did not create myself. And since I did not create it, I don't have access to the code for fixing any issues you may be experiencing. So if you are having issues with the calculator, please visit the support page at Mathway.com for assistance.
