Consolidating loans sallie mae
You can complete and submit the application online, or you can download and print a paper application from Student for submission by U. The consolidation servicer will be your point of contact for any questions you may have related to your consolidation application.
Unless the loans you want to consolidate are in a deferment, forbearance, or grace period, it’s important for you to continue making payments on those loans until your consolidation servicer tells you that they have been paid off by your new Direct Consolidation Loan.
You may be contacted by private companies that offer to help you apply for a Direct Consolidation Loan, for a fee. There’s no need to pay anyone for assistance in getting a Direct Consolidation Loan. The loans that were consolidated are paid off and no longer exist.
For example, if you have both Direct Loans and other types of federal student loans, and you have been making payments toward PSLF on your Direct Loans, you should not consolidate your Direct Loans along with your other loans.

If any of the loans you want to consolidate are still in the grace period, you have the option of indicating on your Direct Consolidation Loan application that you want the servicer that is processing your application to delay the consolidation of your loans until closer to the grace period end date.
If you submitted your application online, your consolidation servicer’s contact information was provided at the end of the online process.

Whom do I contact if I have questions about consolidation?
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.
