Make sure you carefully consider whether the consolidation loan is the best option for you. While consolidation can simplify loan repayment and lower your monthly payments, can also significantly increase the total cost of paying your loan. Consolidation offers lower monthly payments by giving you up to 30 years to pay back your loan. But, if you increase the length of your repayment period, you will also pay more and pay more in interest than you want. In fact, in some situations, consolidation can double your total interest expense. If you do not need monthly payment relief, you should compare the cost of repaying your unconsolidated loans against the cost of repaying a consolidation loan.

You should also consider the impact of losing any borrower benefits offered by the original loan payment plan. Borrowers benefit from your original loan, which may include interest rate discounts, principal rebates, loans or the cancellation of some benefit, can significantly reduce the cost of paying back your loan. You may lose benefits if you consolidate.

Once your loans are combined into a direct consolidation loan, they can not be removed. That's because the consolidation loan has paid off and nothing else. Take time to study the pros and cons of consolidation before you submit your application.
