New eSignature Offers Last Minute Consolidation Options for Federal Student Borrowers

Thu, 29 Jun 2006 05:00:00 GMT

With less than 24 hours left for graduates to consolidate their federal student loans at the current lower interest rates, borrowers are turning to esignature as their last remaining option. On July 1, 2006, interest rates on federal student loans are scheduled to make a near-record setting 35% increase over the current loan rates. Graduates who qualify and apply for a student loan consolidation prior to July 1 will be able to lock in their interest rates, protecting them from the increase. However, graduates' and student loan borrowers application forms must be received before July 1 in order to be protected from the rate increase.

Wed, 21 Jun 2006 09:23:12 GMT

On June 15, 2006, President Bush signed into law HR 4939, an emergency budget bill that included a provision for students and graduates with student loans to be able to consolidate their federal student loans with the company of their choice. This freedom of choice comes at a critical time, as graduates face a near-record average interest rate increase of 35% on student loans beginning July 1, 2006. Acting quickly can save graduates hundreds or even thousands of dollars over the life of a loan.

Wed, 07 Jun 2006 05:00:00 GMT

This month, approximately 4 million college students will leave campus for good, taking away diplomas, friendships, and an average of $23,000 in federal student loans.

In less than one week, up to 40% of students and college graduates with federal student loans may find themselves unable to consolidate their student loans with the lender of their choice. New regulations from the US Department of Education will restrict the availability of consolidation options for thousands of students around the country, robbing them of their right to choose which companies may help them manage ever-growing student loan debt.

Rising Mortgages, Falling Home Prices May Trigger Need For Alternative Student Loans

In recent years, as much as 5% of home equity tapped by homeowners has been used to fund higher education costs, according to the Consumer Bankers Association. Low interest rates on home equity loans combined with skyrocketing home valuations has made equity accessible and affordable.

2006 Heralds No Increase to Federal Aid, Prompting Alternative Student Loans

Tue, 20 Dec 2005 05:00:00 GMT

Despite long sessions in Congress debating the Higher Education Act Reauthorization, 2006 looms large with no significant changes in federal financial aid for students. Natural disasters and intense political debate delayed the Congressional re-authorization of the Higher Education Act, which means that students who were hoping for an increase in federal financial aid will have to wait until the next academic year for any changes by Congress. As a result, students, parents, and families who need financial aid to cover education expenses are increasingly turning to alternative student loans to bridge the gap between unchanging federal financial aid and increasing tuition bills.

Consolidate Student Loans to Protect Against Future Rate Increases

Two potential developments in student loans are being eyed by college graduates across the United States as 2005 winds down -- Congressional legislation that could make consolidating student loans more expensive, and rising interest rates that could cause monthly payments to balloon in 2006. However, one option available for graduates to protect themselves against significant changes in the cost of their loans is student loan consolidation.
