Student Loan Consolidation

Consolidating Your Student Loans

The process of loan consolidation can be simply defined as combining many different loans into a single loan. With loan consolidation, you can simplify the payment process and pay back the loan with a single fixed interest rate that is lower than the combined individual interest rates of all your loans. Consolidation may also extend your loan repayment term, resulting in lower monthly student loan payments.

Single Monthly Payments – Consolidation simplifies the repayment process by consolidating multiple monthly payments into a single payment.

Extended Repayment Term – Loan consolidation gives you an extension in the repayment term, which results in lower monthly payments and increased affordability.

Affordable Repayment Plan – Loan consolidation gives you another chance to select a repayment plan that best suits your circumstances.
