Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about student loan refinancing? If we haven’t answered your questions below, contact us – that’s why we’re here.

After you've chosen one of your pre-qualified offers, please be prepared to submit proof of income. If you have a cosigner, you may not need to submit income as we can rely on the income of the cosigner which they will need to submit proof of instead. Once the income verifications are completed, you will be prompted to sign the credit agreement and then formally accept the loan. From there, your loan will be certified by your school and then we will disburse the funds directly to the school according to their instructions. That’s it!

Let’s get one thing right out of the way. It is free to apply for a loan with us.

Refinancing a Parent PLUS loan combines your Parent PLUS loan (and any other loans the student has) into a brand-new loan – often, with a lower interest rate and/or monthly payment. The new refinanced loan will be in the student’s name, not the parent’s.

All of your federal and private student loans are eligible for refinance. Most borrowers refinance their higher interest rate private student loans. If you refinance federal student loans, you’ll lose federal loan benefits, such as income-driven repayment plans and Public Service Loan Forgiveness. Many people choose to refinance their private student loans and keep their federal student loans to take advantage of the federal student loan benefits.

We can also refinance Parent PLUS loans and transfer them to the student.

It’s always free to check and see if you qualify for a better rate. See Disclaimer If you have good credit and a stable job meeting Nelnet Bank’s annual income criteria, you might want to consider refinancing.

Maximum student loan limits:

  • $125,000 for borrowers with an undergraduate degree or higher
  • $175,000 for borrowers with a graduate, doctorate, MBA, or law degree
  • $500,000 for borrowers with a graduate health professions degree

The minimum loan amount you can refinance is $5,000.

Eligibility requirements:
  • Citizenship You or your cosigner must be a U.S. citizen or have permanent residency status with a valid U.S. Social Security number.
  • Graduation You must have graduated with a Bachelor’s degree or higher.
  • Legal Age You or your cosigner must be of the age of majority in your state/territory – or be age 18 or older if no state requirement exists.
  • Credit You or your cosigner must meet Nelnet Bank’s credit criteria.
  • Income You, or your cosigner, must meet Nelnet Bank’s annual income criteria.
  • Cosigner A cosigner isn’t required, but may help you meet credit or qualify for a better rate.

A Note About Student Loan Refinancing

Understand and evaluate the various features and benefits of your current loans, and any potential benefits that may be lost by refinancing federal and private education loans, such as the loss of any remaining grace periods. Learn more about what to take into consideration when refinancing federal student loans with private education loans.

1Checking your rate results in a soft credit pull, which will not affect your credit score. If you continue with your application, Nelnet Bank will request your permission to obtain your full credit report from one or more consumer reporting agencies. This is a hard credit pull and may affect your credit score. back

2This calculator is intended for informational purposes only and accuracy is not guaranteed. Actual loan terms will be based on your application and credit report.

The lowest interest rate requires a creditworthy eligible borrower, and automatically withdrawn (“auto debit”) payments, a five-year repayment term, and borrowers making immediate principal and interest payments. Not all borrowers will receive the lowest rate.

Your actual savings, if any, may vary based on interest rates, balances, remaining repayment terms and other factors. Refinancing to a longer term may lower your monthly payments, but may also increase the total interest paid over the life of the loan. Refinancing to a shorter term may increase your monthly payments, but may lower the total interest paid over the life of the loan. back
