Why Consolidate Your Student Loans?
Even with established credit and stable incomes, college graduates may feel overwhelmed
by their student loans - especially if they’re still paying 7.9% on old Federal Grad Plus loans or
6.8% on unsubsidized Direct loans that were issued years ago. If you’re in this boat, you deserve a break - and cuStudentLoans can help.
Graduates who are successfully moving forward with their careers are perfect candidates
for loan consolidation: their credit scores and income are on the rise and will continue
to improve in the future. cuStudentLoans can help you to leverage this enhanced financial
status by allowing you to take control of your debt repayments, keep more money in
your pocket, and save time with a single payment each month.
1. This is a variable rate loan, meaning that your rate may change after consummation. Rates may change monthly and are based on the average of the 1-Month London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) as reported by the Wall Street Journal two business days prior to the 8th of each month. The rate advertised above assumes that the borrower enrolls in automatic ACH payments and receives the .25% rate reduction. There is an interest rate floor of 2.75%. Please review the Application and Solicitation Disclosure for additional information. The rate reduction will be removed and the rate will be increased by 0.25% upon any cancellation or failed collection attempt of the automatic payment and will be suspended during any period of deferment or forbearance. As a result, during the forbearance or suspension period, and/or if the automatic payment is canceled, any increase will take the form of higher payments.
2. In order to qualify, the borrower, alone, must meet the lender's credit criteria, and the borrower's loan account must be and remain current up until the lender's decision to release the cosigner has been made.
3. IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE REFINANCING OF YOUR FEDERAL STUDENT LOANS: Please be aware that you may potentially lose certain benefits associated with your federal student loans by refinancing such federal loans with a private student loan consolidation. These benefits may include favorable repayment options, loan and fixed interest rates, extended loan terms, and loan forgiveness. We strongly advise that you seek professional advice and examine our benefits and options before refinancing your federal loans. It is important to us that you are comfortable with potentially forfeiting benefits that may not be offered through our consolidation loan
