7 Tips To Make The Most of Private Student Loan Consolidation

Just as the national student loan debt has risen, so has the popularity of student loan consolidation. The concept has several advantages and disadvantages.

How To Receive Money From Lenders

Generally speaking, a federally subsidized or unsubsidized loan or private loan can be sent directly to the student, or sent to the student's school to be put in their account. Federal student loans have two distribution channels, both of which can cut a check directly to the borrower or the school.
