Consolidation Rates Go Up in July; Consolidate Now @ The Best Possible Rate, If You Haven't Already...

Thanks to The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, student loan consolidation rates will be going up on July 1 of this year. But according to a press release issued by the folks at NextStudent.com, you can consolidate your student loans, as low as 2.75% right now.

Here's a snippet from today's press release:

"NextStudent, one of the nation’s premier federal student loan consolidation and education funding companies, is pleased to now offer to qualified borrowers a 2.75 percent fixed student loan consolidation rate, with benefits applied.

The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 recently passed and brought with it major cuts to the federal student loan program along with changes that will negatively impact federal student loan consolidation rates and regulations. Changes are set to take effect July 1, so eligible borrowers now can lock in low rates and reduce payments as much as 70 percent.

According to NextStudent, in-school borrowers can receive a student loan consolidation rate of 4.75 percent, allowing them to avoid the July 1 increase on their federal student loan rates. The company’s borrower incentives include: one easy payment, no prepayment penalties and a longer payment term.

The student loan consolidation program has no fees or costs and is beneficial for borrowers who want to reduce or postpone monthly payments before the July 1 rate increase when it will become more difficult to consolidate. NextStudent offers eligibility determination in one minute to borrowers who want to prevent interest rate hikes on their student loans.
