What is student loan refinancing?
Student loan refinancing gives you the ability to refinance one or more federal and private student loans into a single loan with new terms, including a new interest rate, monthly payment amount or repayment length. Even if you have previously consolidated or refinanced your student loans, you may be able to lower your interest rate and/or your monthly payment by refinancing.

Should I refinance my Federal Student Loans?
Whether to refinance your student loans is a personal decision, here’s what to consider:
- Refinancing allows you to organize your finances with one convenient payment
- You could be eligible for a lower interest rate, reducing your total cost over the long-term
- You can extend your repayment term to reduce your monthly payment
If you have federal student loans:
- Federal loans offer income-based repayment programs which could be beneficial if your income might fluctuate
- 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 offer forbearance and deferment time in the event of reenrollment or financial hardship
- Federal loans are forgiven if the borrower passes away or becomes disabled
Before finalizing the loan documents, we encourage you to clearly understand the rates and terms of your current lender, establish what you wish to accomplish by refinancing, and know what your new refinanced rate and term are.
What loans are eligible for refinancing?
When refinancing your student loans, you can include any student loan debt used for financing your education. You cannot include any other debt (for example, credit card or mortgage), even if it was used to pay educational expenses. If you previously consolidated your student loans into a single loan, you may still be able to refinance your debt.
Our application has a list of the most common loan servicers; however, you may submit loans for servicers not listed. When we review your application, we will determine whether loans from that servicer may be refinanced.
