PLEASE NOTE 

*Refinancing or consolidating private and federal student loans may not be the right decision for everyone. Benefits that exist with federal loans (such as public service forgiveness and income-based repayment plans) could be forfeited if you consolidate them into a private loan. 

If you’re not sure, first check your federal student loan forgiveness eligibility status with the NEA Student Loan Forgiveness Navigator tool.
