I HAVE A SCHOOL LOAN FOR THE PAST 18 YEARS AT 7.5% AT ACS. IS THERE ANY WAY I COULD GET A CHEAPER LOAN. UNFORTUNATELY I HAD CONSOLIDATED WHEN I RECEIVED THE LOAN. EVIDENTLY I WAS YOUNG AND UNAWARE OF ANY ALTERNATIVES.
Terry Says: Ugh — 18 years at 7.5%! That is ugly. And yes, you can only “consolidate” student loans once. BUT, now you can refi the entire loan to a lower rate private loan. Read the column I just posted on my website. Then, go to www.SoFi.com. If you have a job and a good loan payment record you can now refi even Federal student loans. Please let me know what happens–what lower rate you get.
