Student loan refinancing

What is student loan refinancing?

Student loan refinancing or consolidation is an important step if you took out students loans during your studies. During your college years, you may have taken out 2 or more loans to pay for your studies and  you will have to manage the payments to different credit companies, with different payment dates and interest.

Once you’ve finished college or completed an undergraduate or graduate degree program and are looking for work, you don’t have the time to handle and manage your old students loans.

This is where student loan refinancing comes in:

> It allows you to regroup several students loans in one loan, easier to manage, with only one repayment schedule and interest rate.

> Student loan refinancing can regroup your federal or privates loans.

> The rate can be lower rate than your actual students loans, or the rate will be a weighted average of your original loans’ rates.

> You will also be able to change the maturity date to adjust the repayment amount.
