Student Loan Refinancing

STUDENT LOAN REFINANCING is a common practice among graduates who are finding they can get lower rate loans after graduating than they could as students.

One great reason to refinance student loans is to consolidate them into a single monthly bill at a fixed rate of interest. This can extend time to repay and make monthly payments smaller.

For many students, federal loans are also a part of the loan picture. Legally, student loans subsidized by the government can only be refinanced following graduation. At that time it is a great opportunity to refinance and lock into a lower rate of interest.

If you are looking to refinance your student loans to fit your budget and save on interest payments there are loan professionals who can help. By extending your loan term your loan term it is possible to spend upwards of 50 percent less every month on your student loan payments.

It is typical for those who refinance student loans to benefit from a rate drop of one percent after couple years of on-time payments on the new refinanced loan. This provides another incentive for refinancing if you do not anticipate paying off your student loans in less than a couple of years.
