What Income Share Agreements Are & How It Works at MentorWorks



Income Share Agreements (ISAs) are a flexible alternative to traditional fixed payment installment loans. Basically, students pay a percentage of their future income for a set period of time, up to a maximum cap, without accruing interest. Unlike a loan, students do not pay until they find a job and reach the minimum income threshold. The payments adjust according to the level of the student’s income – providing downside protections for the student. ISAs may be issued by Blue Ridge Bank, N.A. ISAs may not be available to residents of California.


  • Students do not pay until they find a job and reach the minimum income threshold
  • The payments adjust according to levels of the student’s income
  • Monthly payments are calculated by applying the income share rate to the total monthly earned income
  • ISA obligations can be ended earlier by making early payments as listed in the early payment schedule


Income Share Agreements     VS.       PLUS/Private Loans
Interest does not accrue or capitalize. Interest accrues and capitalizes.
Your credit score does not affect the terms of your ISA. Your credit score may affect the terms of your loan and could impact your eligibility.
Monthly payments are based on a percentage of your income. You pay a fixed amount each month, regardless of your income.
Payments don’t start until you make above the minimum salary level in your ISA contract. You make payments, even if you are not making an income.
You only make ISA payments within a specific timeframe, usually 5-7 years. After that your obligation is over. Loan payment term can extend indefinitely until you pay off the principal and interest.
You know the maximum amount you’ll pay, no matter what. Interest is capitalized, so the final payoff amount can increase over the life of the loan if you do not make minimum monthly payments.
