My Student Loans

Getting to and through veterinary school takes a long time and a lot of education. Along the way, you can borrow a variety of loan types to finance your education resulting in a complex student loan portfolio. Before you can formulate a repayment plan, you need to understand your student loans.  This short video tutorial will show you how to retrieve and upload your NSLDS file.

 

The VIN Foundation My Student Loans tool will help you make sense of your student loan portfolio. Using your National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) file, My Student Loans will organize your loans by type, date received, interest rate, principal, calculate a weighted average interest rate, and estimate your monthly interest accumulation. This information is crucial for helping you determine which repayment plans you can use.

Veterinary Student Debt Center Launches

We are excited to announce the launch of our Student Debt Center, a mobile-friendly comprehensive resource for all things related to student debt, in particular veterinary student debt.

With veterinarians leaving school having a debt load routinely exceeding two times their salary, and far surpassing the “healthy” debt-to-income ratio of most professions, this is a critical issue impacting the veterinary profession. Veterinary student debt-related stress is taking a toll on individuals and the profession – a toll measured in physical, emotional and financial stress. The VIN Foundation is answering the call to this crisis with the Student Debt Center.
