VIN Foundation Student Debt Center: A free resource for all things related to educational debt, in particular, veterinary students' debt. It is made up of the following sections: 

    • The Cost of Education Map, which gives a look at the cost of veterinary schools, taking into consideration in-state, out-of-state, and private tuition along with living expenses. 
    • The Student Loan Repayment Simulator, an interactive program giving detailed repayment cost comparisons based on anticipated income, family information, total loan amount and repayment plan. A forgiveness planning module also helps those using income-driven repayment plans to understand and plan for the estimated tax consequences of debt forgiveness. 
    • WikiDebt, a resource library for all things dealing with educational debt specific to veterinary students and veterinarians.
