Federal Aid First

Will you need a loan? If so, think federal aid first! Federal loans usually offer borrowers lower interest rates and have more flexible repayment options than loans from banks or other private sources. Visit the Federal Aid First page for more information.

Special Direct Consolidation Loans

The Higher Education Act (HEA) provides for a loan consolidation program under both the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Programs and the Direct Loan Program. Under these programs, a borrower's loans are paid off and a new consolidation loan is created. These programs simplify loan repayment by combining several types of Federal education loans (that may have different terms and repayment schedules or may have been made by different lenders) into one new loan. Visit the Direct Consolodation Loans website for more information.
