Student Loan Refinancing Tips

Shop around for your best rates.

No one company is the best for everyone. Rates vary depending on your annual income, total debt, savings, and monthly housing payment. Most lenders let you check your rate online for free so finding the right lender for you should be a quick and easy first step.

Choose your loan terms.

Once you’ve chosen a lender, you can also compare the loan terms for a five-year, 10-year or longer repayment term. While a longer term will lower your monthly payments it could ultimately cost you more if more interest accrues over the life of the loan.

Submit an application and upload your documents.

To lock in your new interest rates you need to apply and upload documents to your new lender. The required documents typically include loan statements, proof of income and proof of citizenship. If you forget a document, don’t worry the lender will notify you.

Reminder: Keep paying your loans off while you wait for approval. It may take a few weeks for your
refinancing application to get approved, so continue to make your regular payments on your loans until
you’re officially approved.
