We usually request a payment letter from the student loan company. <br/><br/>If you finance the purchase with an FHA mortgage your student loan payments can be ignored if your payments are defered for greater than 12 mos. from the note date.&nbsp;If you don't qualify&nbsp;with the student loan payment and if you are not looking at purchasing until you graduate from your current program then you'll want to enroll in the graduate program prior to getting the loan.&nbsp; We'll request an anticipated graduation date from that program and since it will be more than 12 mos out we'll be able to exclude the payment from the debt to income calculation. <br/><br/>We are here in TN if you would like to work with someone in TN I can put you in contact with a loan officer to assist you.
