Student Loan Calculator (“SLC”) is a personal finance comparison marketplace that connects consumers with leading financial brands in the student loan space. We help drive smarter decisions through actionable advice, educational tools, dynamic calculators, and insightful reviews.

We believe in full transparency in financial services. That’s one of the reasons we created SLC – to help level the playing field between large financial institutions and you. We provide articles, comparison tools, calculators, and other content (“SLC Content”) for free and for educational and informational purposes only. SLC Content is not intended to provide financial, legal, investment, accounting, or tax advice. Our tools and calculators are for illustrative purposes only and are not guaranteed to be accurate. The results and default figures shown in our tools and calculators are hypothetical and may not apply to your individual, unique situation. We are not affiliated with or endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education or any other government agency. All the editorial content on SLC is independent and written solely by SLC. The content and reviews on SLC are based solely on the author’s opinions, and are not provided, approved, endorsed, or reviewed by any financial institution, bank, credit card issuer, hotel, airline, or any partner or other entity.

It is also important to us to share how we earn money. We are not a lender, broker, or financial or investment adviser. SLC also does not provide financial, legal, investment, accounting, or investment advice. We are a for-profit company and receive compensation from our partners if you apply for and receive one of their products. This helps us to support our website and continue to offer free content, analysis, tools, resources, and reviews so we can fulfill our mission and continue to be one of the leading sources of personal finance. The products featured on this website are from our partners who compensate us. This may impact which companies we review, the products we evaluate, and where and how a product appears on a page. We receive compensation from a partner when you apply for and receive a product through SLC. Any compensation that SLC receives from its advertising partners may affect how and where products appear on the site, including, for example, the order in which a lender or credit card appears in a table. This also may influence which companies or products we write about or review, but this doesn’t affect our reviews or recommendations, which are based on independent research. SLC is not compensated for writing a favorable review of a product or service. SLC strives to work with a diverse group of high-quality companies to help you make more informed financial decisions with confidence. However, we recognize that we cannot include on our website every financial company, product, or service available in the market nor can we guarantee the lowest price, lowest rate, best rate, or best terms available in the market.
