nonprofit & State-based Refinancing Programs

   

Eleven EFC Members offer education refinancing loans.

These nonprofit and state-based education refinancing programs make education debt more manageable for families by providing a refinancing tool that consolidates high-interest rate education loans into a single loan, reducing monthly payments and, in many cases, overall debt burden.
