Program Representing Over 125 Not-for-Profit Credit Unions Continues its Commitment to Helping Students Reduce Debt After Graduation

In light of President Obama’s efforts to better manage student loan debt from the Direct Lending Program (DLP) and the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP) with a new federal consolidation option, cuStudentLoans, a credit union service organization (CUSO) that developed and manages a private student loan program comprised of over 125 not-for-profit credit unions nationwide, has reaffirmed its commitment to reducing private student loan debt through its EdSucceed Private Student Loan Consolidation.

“Young people today are faced with extraordinary economic challenges in affording higher-education, especially when entering such a competitive job market upon graduation,” said Tom O’Shea, Chairman of cuStudentLoans, LLC. “Credit unions will continue to respond with responsible debt management solutions, including the EdSucceed Private Student Loan Consolidation, which provides the ability to refinance private student loans after graduation at typically much lower interest rates and considerable savings to the borrower.”

The cuStudentLoans program, which currently serves more than 125 participating credit unions nationwide, uses common underwriting and pricing in its EdSucceed Private Student Loan Consolidation, which has been available to eligible graduates since December 2010.
