Loan payment options for loan consolidation:
Equal monthly payments over the term of the loan.
Select 2/Graduated Payments
You make interest-only payments first two years of repayment. Payments increase to level installments of principal and interest payments for the remaining term of the loan, in the third year.
Select 5/Graduated Payments
