Loans allow people to buy things they need but don't have enough money saved away to purchase. Loans are often used when buying real estate and automobiles, as well as financing college education tuition or starting a business.

Unless loans are provided by family or friends, recipients of borrowed funds must apply for personal or business loans through banks or credit unions. Lending institutions require borrowers to provide evidence they are capable of repaying loans. If borrowers have poor credit their loan application might be denied or lenders may require a qualified co-signer.

Loan Deferment

Loan deferment might be a good choice for students facing temporary financial challenges. Most college loan payments can be deferred for a few months when students are enduring economic hardships, unemployment, military deployment or enrolled in school at least half-time.

Students must apply for loan deferment through the loan provider. College loans that qualify for deferred payments include: Parent PLUS, Graduate PLUS, Stafford, federal, and private student loans. Students that have entered into college loan consolidation may also qualify for loan deferment.

Student Loan Consolidation

One of the primary benefits of student loan consolidation is reduced monthly payments. Loan consolidation can be a smart choice for graduates with multiple loans, but careful consideration should be given. In some cases, interest can be higher than what students are paying on federal loans.

Another perk of student loan consolidation is borrowers only have one payment. This is particularly helpful for medical and law students who have several student loans. It can be difficult to manage four or more loan payments each month. Not only must graduates budget finances to accommodate different loan payments, they must also keep track of payment dates. Missing student loan payments can result in late fees and reflect poorly on credit reports

Student Loan Consolidation

Many graduates are turning to student loan consolidation to eliminate multiple payments. While consolidating multiple loans can reduce monthly payments and interest rates, it is important to conduct research to determine if consolidation is the best financial decision.

Many factors must be considered with college loan consolidation. Both subsidized and unsubsidized college loans can be consolidated. However, under federal law lenders are required to consolidate these types of student loans individually in order to monitor payment transactions. College graduates can use the same lender and submit one payment for both loans.

College Loan Consolidation

College loan consolidation requires debtors to apply for a loan which pays off multiple student loans. Students who have private and federal education loans can sometimes benefit from consolidating multiple loans into one account. Loan consolidation not only eliminates the need to keep track of multiple payment dates, but can also reduce the amount of interest along with lowering monthly payments.

Before entering into college loan consolidation it is important to comparison shop. Debtors should strive to obtain the lowest possible interest rate. If students do not have a high FICO score or have poor credit, they may want to consider obtaining a co-signer. Otherwise, the interest charged against consolidated student loans can be substantially higher.
