weigh options to make sure that you get the best rate for you.

   1. Make sure that you have a very good credit score before you sign up for a student
      consolidated loan. Lenders offer lower rates to borrowers who have a good credit

      that are offered to you. Different lenders offer various plans to borrowers. Some
      may offer a lower monthly plan than other lenders. Make sure that you get the
      lowest monthly plan that is offered.

      consolidated loans offer a fixed rate but it is still important that you know this
      information. Other lenders offer a lower interest rate on the first few years but
      will eventually rise on the coming years. Make sure that the plan you get will not

      if they can provide you with better options.
   7. Make a comparison of all your prospect lenders before making a final decision.
