Subsidized and unsubsidized loans

Private and government loans


Private education loans are not eligible for consolidation, but for some Direct Consolidation Loan repayment plans, the total amount of your education loan debt—including any private education loans—determines how long you have to repay your Direct Consolidation Loan.

Direct PLUS Loans received by parents to help pay for a dependent student’s education cannot be consolidated together with federal student loans that the student received. https://studentaid.gov/manage-loans/consolidation


Questions:

  • Retired and paying student loans
  • Private loans
  • Loan not reported on credit report
  • Subsidized
  • For profit college
