Can't add my student loan

I can't find my student loan provider in the list. How can I add this monthly expense so that it's incorporated into my budget?


Hello hitchcockamanda,

Thank you for your question! First, you can request your loan provider be added to Mint through using Contact Mint at 

Meanwhile, you can add your monthly loan expense transaction manually, using the 'Add Transaction' button on top of the Transaction page. If you want, you can create a Loan Payment budget to attach the transaction. To do this, go to any transaction and hover, click Edit Details and then click the categories drop box. Then choose a main category, click and scroll down the options and click Add./Edit Categories. Then add your category. Then you can add the budget to match.

Thank you!

Mint Maggie

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
