Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) January 11, 2007
The number of students who now graduate in the Fall is on the rise and so is their student loan debt. While students who graduated in the Fall of 2006 have down time during their job searches StudentFirst is urging them to take a look at their student loans.
Depending on the type of student loan, Fall graduates are given a grace period between 90 and 120 days to start paying off their student loans. This grace period is the best time to consolidate student loans and lock them in at a low interest rate. StudentFirst, the leader in federal student loan consolidations is preparing for an extra busy January due to recent propositions made towards changes in Federal student loan policies.
"January has become an increasingly busy period at StudentFirst because of so many Fall graduates rushing to consolidate their student loans," said Glen Steele, StudentFirst representative. "We even hire extra student loan consultants at this time to help accommodate the influx."
"Our ultimate goal is to make graduates more aware of their options when paying off their federal student loans and helping them to obtain the lowest interest rates on their loans as possible," said Steele. Students who have multiple student loans with different lenders are no longer subject to the single lender rule which made it mandatory for them to stick with all of their original student loan lenders. Students can now take advantage of student loan lenders that compete to provide the lowest interest rates, most accommodating student loan consolidation packages and best customer service.
Student loan consolidation can combine many different types of loans including subsidized and unsubsidized loans, Stafford Loans, PLUS loans, Graduate PLUS loans, federal insured student loans, federal Perkins loans, national defense student loans and more into one easy to pay loan.

Through a strong referral base and StudentFirst's commitment to service they have had the ability to grow at a wonderful pace. StudentFirst's sales teams are highly trained and supported by a dedicated customer service department.
