Special Direct Consolidation Loans Available Through June 30, 2012
Have you been notified by a federal loan servicer that you are eligible for a Special Direct Consolidation Loan? Students who meet eligibility requirements will be contacted by FedLoan Servicing, Great Lakes Educational Loan Services, Inc., Nelnet, or Sallie Mae with an offer to apply.
Special Direct Consolidation Loans are part of President Obama's "Help Americans Manage Student Loan Debt" initiative. A Special Direct Consolidation Loan centralizes eligible federal loans under one servicer so you can better manage your payments without extending your repayment term and paying more in interest over time. Applications must be submitted prior to June 30, 2012.
If you have been contacted by a federal loan servicer about your eligibility and you have questions, please contact that servicer - refer to the correspondence from the servicer for contact information.
If you have not been contacted by a federal loan servicer, but you have general questions about Special Direct Consolidation Loans, you can call 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243) for assistance.
