In order for us to help you determine your student loan consolidation options, you will need to have a current summary of your student loans. Most borrowers have received their student loan information from their school’s financial aid office and/or statements from the current lenders on their loans.

The information that we will need in order to determine your consolidation options are:

  • Loan type
  • Loan balance
  • Interest rate
  • Loan disbursement date
  • Loan status
  • Servicing agency
