After graduation there are many things to juggle: finding & keeping a job, where to live, maintaining a supply of food & toilet paper, getting up in time each day in order to get to the job (which can be a difficult for some folks), and paying bills (hopefully on time). Instead of waiting until after graduation to see how much you’ll have to pay in student loans each month, go ahead and use this new tool from the Department of Education. It’s a great way to figure out how much you’ll owe by the time you graduate AND to understand how your loans work.
