Will not paying off accrued interest on my student loans effect my credit score
My 6-month grace period on my student loans is almost up and I have just over 1k in accrued interest, if I do not pay off the interest will it effect my credit score?

I can pay it off and I know I would save $$ over time but I just graduated and would prefer having cash flow, however; if it will negatively effect my credit score I will simply pay it off.
