Loan Consolidation

Consolidation allows you to combine all eligible federal education loans into one new loan. However, consolidation is not for everyone.

Pros

  • Lock in a low fixed interest rate

  • Reduce monthly payments because of the extended repayment period

  • Make one payment to one lender
  • Transfer Stafford loans from a private lender to the Direct Lending Program to benefit from the Public Service Loan Forgiveness option

Cons

  • Extend the life of your loan

  • Forfeit original repayment incentives

  • May lose the grace period

  • May pay more total interest over the extended repayment period

More information regarding consolidation is available online through the Federal Direct Consolidation Loans Information Center or by calling 1-800-557-7392.
