VIN Foundation Launches Student Debt Center

This interactive resource provides information and tools to help students navigate their vet school debt.


Published:

The VIN Foundation, part of the Veterinary Information Network (VIN), has announced a new tool for vet students: The Student Debt Center. The center is a resource for all things related to high costs of veterinary school, according to VIN Foundation.

“Helping veterinarians understand their borrowing and loan repayment options is key to surviving this crisis,” said Tony Bartels, DVM, MBA, a student debt expert at VIN Foundation. “It starts before veterinary school and continues for the duration of loan repayment; this is where the VIN Foundation can help our colleagues climb, survive and thrive no matter how high their debt load.”

The Debt Center is composed of three sections:

  • Cost of Education Map: This map shows how much veterinary school costs between states, and factors in in-state versus out-of-state cost and living expenses. 
  • Student Loan Repayment Simulator: This tool helps veterinary students generate debt repayment cost comparisons based on income, loan information and repayment plans.
  • WikiDebt: An online library of debt resources, including student loan FAQs and worksheets.

Learn more about the Student Debt Center at the VIN Foundation website.
