As a college student, you are constantly dishing out thousands of dollars towards various expenses, including tuition, books, fees, housing, food, cell phone bills, utilities, insurance and car payments. The list could go on forever. And, if you are like many students in America, part of your education is probably funded through private student loans.
There has never been a better time to consolidate your private student loans. Though the cost of schooling can cost thousands, EdFed is here to help you save thousands! This is because EdFed offers competitively, low interest rates and fees with our private student loan consolidations. Also, when you consolidate your private student loans through EdFed, you can save almost 50% off of your monthly bill!
To save even more off of our already low interest rates, you can qualify to receive our borrower benefits. When you sign up to pay with our automated debit program you will receive an immediate 0.25% reduction off of your interest rate.
When you consolidate your private student loans with EdFed, we offer you three repayment options to choose from, enabling you to choose the one that best meets your financial needs. Your interest rate stays the same, no matter which option you choose, and you have the freedom to change your repayment option at any time, should your situation change. Your payment options include:
This is the most common repayment option. In an equal payment repayment plan, both the interest and principal of the consolidation loan will be paid equally for the life of the loan. Your monthly payment will stay constant for the entire repayment period.
Select 2/ Graduated Payments
The Select 2 repayment option enables you to make interest-only payments for the first two years of repayment. After two years, the payments will increase to include equal installments of both the interest and principal for the remaining term of the loan.
Select 5/ Graduated Payments
The Select 5 payment option enables you to make interest-only payments for the first two years of repayment. During the third through fifth years of the loan, the payments will increase to include only a portion of the principal with the interest. When you enter the sixth year of your loan repayment, your payments will once again increase, this time to include both the principal and interest equally throughout the remainder of the loan.

Student Loan Consolidation Info - How to Choose the Right Loan Company
The Career Resources column is presented by Granted, America's leading job search engine dedicated to getting people jobs.
Education is one of the most basic right of any human, but with the increase in prices and the costs involved in education this has made these rights turn into a privilege which very few can enjoy. Any normal person today in the whole of United States has to take an education loan at one point of time to pay for their education fees.
As a result of the new, higher interest rates, someone with $20,000 in student loans can expect to pay around $5,000 more in added interest over the life of the loan. Borrower benefits can help you reduce your interest rate before you pay these added charges.
