Should I refinance my student loans?

Refinancing lets you trade in your high-rate student debt for one low-rate loan with a single monthly payment. If you're looking to pay off your debt sooner with a shorter term, lower your monthly payment with a longer term, or consolidate your loans into one simple monthly payment, you're in the right place.

When you refinance your student debt with UW Credit Union, you can:

  • Refinance one loan or multiple loans (minimum of $5,000 total). Federal loans, parent PLUS loans and private student loans can be refinanced.
  • Get a fixed or variable rate with a term of 5, 7, 10, or 15 years. 
    • Variable rates are capped at 15%.
  • Get a 0.25% discount on your rate when you enroll in automatic payments.1
  • Request interest-only payments for up to two, 3-month increments.2
  • Forget about hidden fees. You won't pay a cent in annual fees or pre-payment penalties.
  • Get help from our experts any time you need it. The refinance process is easy to navigate, and we're always here to help. 
  • Take a break - Over the life of your loan, you can request up to two 3-month occurrences of interest-only payments and up to two 3-month occurrences of forbearance (skip a payment).2
