Income from student loans are not included or considered as "Income" for qualifying purposes.. however, outstanding student loans,specifically the payments associated with those student loans are considered when calculating your debt to income ratios.

Jessica,I agree with the answer that William gave you. Even if the current loans are in deferment, we will need to count payments when qualifying you. I would be happy to speak with you about loan options that are available. I lend in Colorado, so feel free to give me a call. Allen 720-203-9871

William and Allen answered correctly, the student loans may not be used as "qualifying income" but the payments will be used in the debt to income calculations.
