Repayment Options


Income-Driven Repayment

An income driven repayment plan sets your monthly federal student loan payment at an amount that is intended to be affordable based on your income and family size, U.S. Department of Education offer four income-driven repayment plans:

  • Revised Pay As You Earn Repayment Plan (REPAVE Plan)
  • Pay As You Earn Repayment Plan (PAYE Plan)
  • Income-Based Repayment Plan (IBR Plan)
  • Income-Contingent Repayment Plan (ICR Plan)

If you'd like to repay your federal student loans under an income-driven plan, you will need to fill out an application.

Standard Repayment

  • Fixed (substantially equal) monthly amounts are paid over the maximum of 10 years.
  • Your monthly payment must be at least $50. The repayment term cannot exceed 10 years, excluding in-school, grace, and deferment or forbearance periods

Graduated Repayment

  • Monthly payments are smaller at the beginning of the repayment period and gradually increase in anticipation of your income increasing.
  • The repayment term is generally 10 years.
  • Monthly payments must cover at least the interest due.

Extended Repayment

  • This option is available only to borrowers whose loans were taken out on or after October 7, 1998, with a FFEL loan balance greater than $30,000.
  • You can select either a standard or graduated repayment plan with up to 25 years to pay off your loans.
  • Monthly payments must cover at least the interest due.

Income-contingent repayment plan for Direct loans

  • Monthly payment amount will be based on your annual income (and that of your spouse if you are married), your family size, and the total amount of your Direct subsidized and unsubsidized loans.
  • As your income changes, your monthly payments may change on an annual basis.
  • If you do not repay your loan after 25 years under this plan, the unpaid portion will be forgiven. You may have to pay income tax on any amount forgiven.
