Consolidating direct student loans
Your repayment term will generally start within 60 days of when your consolidation loan is first disbursed and will be based on your total federal student loan balance, among other factors; click on the link below for more details.

We only evaluate lenders and do not issue student loans.
With student loan consolidation, you may be able to refinance at a lower interest rate, decrease your monthly payment, or both!
When you apply, most banks and lenders will look at your credit score, annual income, savings, and college degree type (or certificate of enrollment if still in school).
If you meet these requirements, you might be an excellent candidate for student loan refinancing and consolidation!
If you don’t think you meet the requirements, don’t worry – as you can apply with a cosigner to increase your chances of getting approved for a better student loan.
