Low Interest Rates Make Student Loan Consolidation Attractive

IF YOU ARE REPAYING student loans, you may be able to benefit from the current low interest rates, says Seattle Pacific University Director of Student Financial Services Vickie Rekow. "To take advantage of all-time low interest rates, which are as low as 3.46 percent, you may want to consider loan consolidation. Loan consolidation is available whether you are in your grace period or in repayment."

Contact the lender or servicer to which you are making payments to determine if loan consolidation will work for you. For general information regarding the Federal Loan Consolidation program, check the Northwest Education Loan Association (NELA) at
