What is student loan refinancing?
Student loan refinancing combines federal and/or private student loans into a new single loan with new terms, interest rate, monthly payment amount or repayment length.

- You submit current student loan statement, which includes payoff amount
- We pay off your current student loans
- You make payments to us for your new student loan
Should I refinance my Federal Student Loan?
Whether to refinance your student loans is a personal decision, and it’s not right for everyone. Here’s what to consider:
- Depending on the loan program, you might be giving up a low, fixed rate.
- Federal loans offer several different types of repayment such as income-based repayment, extended repayment, graduated repayment, etc.
- Federal loans have the potential to be forgiven or have a portion forgiven if the borrower is working in a certain field for a certain amount of time, such as teachers in low-income schools and designated public servants.
- Federal loans are flexible with the amount of forbearance (payment suspension) whereas we limit ours to a year total in 6 month increments.
- Federal loans are forgiven if the borrower passes away or becomes disabled whereas our private student loans are not forgiven.
- Federal loans offer unlimited in-school deferment. Our loan does not offer any deferment.
Before finalizing the loan documents, we encourage you to clearly understand the rates and terms of you current lender, establish what you wish to accomplish by refinancing, and know your new refinanced rate and term are.
