Loan Choices – Select the loan you're applying for:

Federal Loan Consolidation

This loan is available to any borrower (both students and parents) who wants to combine his or her outstanding government guaranteed student loans into a single loan with a single monthly payment. By applying for a Consolidation loan prior to July 1, 2006, you can lock in a low fixed interest rate for the life of the loan. The base consolidation interest rate is determined by taking the weighted average of the current interest rates on the existing/underlying loans that are consolidated. All federal education lenders determine the base consolidation interest rate using this formula. In addition, a Consolidation Loan may have a longer repayment term and lower monthly payments—making repayment easier and more manageable. Learn More >
