Federally-held student loans have a suspension of payments and a temporary interest rate of 0% until 08/31/2022. If you refinance these loans, you will no longer qualify for this relief or other federally-held loan benefits. Carefully consider your options before refinancing federally-held loans.
Lowest rates listed above include an interest rate reduction for eligible applications, enrollment in auto debit, and are available only to the most creditworthy applicants. Advertised variable rates reflect the starting range of rates and may increase over the life of the loan.

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The lowest interest rate requires a creditworthy eligible borrower, and automatically withdrawn (“auto debit”) payments, a five-year repayment term, and borrowers making immediate principal and interest payments.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
