How Does Refinancing Work?

It’s pretty simple. With a student loan refinance, your old loans are paid off and combined into one, simple loan. You could get a lower interest rate because CommonBond bases your loan on where your finances are today.

Choose How You Want to Save

When you refinance your student loan, you could either:

  • Lower your monthly payments and give your budget some extra breathing room 
  • Or, adjust your monthly payments to pay off your loan sooner 


Student Loan Consolidation

Student loan consolidation combines multiple loans into one easy payment, potentially lowering your overall payments. There are several reasons you may want to consider consolidating your student loan, like when you’re wanting one simple payment, aiming to get out of default, your credit improves, or when you’re experiencing a change of income. Benefits include fixed interest rates, lower payments, and simplified loan installments.

Keep Things Simple and Convenient:

  • A variety of loans are eligible, including federal, private and previously consolidated student loans.
  • Pause payments for up to 24 months2, in case life gets in the way.
  • Pay no prepayment fees3 if you want to get ahead on payments.
  • Pay no origination fees, so you can start saving from day one.
