When do the interests on student loans start? Do they start as soon as we receive the loan?
Federal student loans the interest on Perkins and subsidized Staffords start when the loan goes into repayment. Interest on parent and unsubsidized loans start when you get the loan.
It is very important that you pay the interest that adds up on the loans that start when you get the loan before the loans go into repayment. If you do not do this, then they will take the amount of your loan and then add the total interest that has added up giving you a higher balance. Then has the loan goes into repayment and you have payments you will continue to pay interest but on that higher balance causing you to pay way more for the loan over the loan payback. That is called capitalization. So pay the interest before the loan goes into repayment. I called the Stafford reps and they told me this and they said it is best to pay the interest yearly that way when you are in your final year and you are about to go into repayment on your loans you will not have to pay all the interest at once.
Most loans go into repayment starting 6 months after you quit, fall below half time or graduate. Checkyour loan contract to see when your repayment is.
Private loans you get, not federal, again check the contract.
I have a subsidized student loan that will start to accumulate interest once the repayment phase begins 6 months after I graduate. I have an UNsubsidized loan that began accumulating interest immediately. It really is vitally important to pay the interest. My monthly interest is very minimal. It began at $24 a month. I usually pay $10 more than the interest due. Now that I will be graduating soon, not only do I have no accumulated interest but I've been able to pay down a little of the principle amount borrowed. So now my monthly interest is down to $16 a month. When it is time to repay the loan I will owe less than originally borrowed.
