Federal Direct Consolidation Loans


Federal Direct Consolidation Loans are run by the US

Department of Education and provide a means to combine

multiple Federal loans into one.


You can apply online for the Federal Direct Program by

visiting the website at https://loanconsolidation.ed.gov/appentry/appindex.html.


State Student Consolidation Loans


Several states offer consolidation loans as part of their

education loan programs. Check with your state to see if they

have a loan consolidation program.


Private Student Consolidation Loans


Private loans can not be consolidated under the Federal Direct

Plan. If you can't qualify for the federal and state student

loan consolidation programs because you have private loans,

there are many lenders who make private consolidation loans

available to students. Check with your own lenders first to

see if they have a consolidation program.
