Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 15, 2005
NextStudent, a Phoenix-based provider of student lending services, announced this week the launch of their latest tool to make college funding simple: electronic signature for Federal Consolidation Loans. Now, instead of returning the signed application by mail, borrowers simply sign the form electronically, shaving days off the application process.
Upon launching electronic signature service, NextStudent loan application submissions have spiked, proving that borrowers are interested in a better way to manage the loan application process.
ÂWhen customers use the electronic signature option, their applications can be processed immediately,Â says Don Fenstermaker, chief executive officer at NextStudent. ÂWe authenticate the signature right away, so borrowers never lose the time it takes to mail forms back and forth.Â
In celebration of its new electronic signature, NextStudent is offering a special rate on Federal Consolidation Loans. For a limited time, borrowers in their grace period (the six-month period between graduation and the beginning of loan repayment) can take an additional .375% off NextStudentÂs already low interest rates. This means borrowers could pay rates as low as 1.25%, the lowest of any consolidation product on the market.
ÂWith consolidation, student loan payments could be as much as 60 percent less than the total of the original, separate loan payments, and the entire balance could be thousands less if graduates consolidate during the grace period and they take advantage of the additional 0.375% savings,Â says Fenstermaker. ÂBorrowers can use the money they save to pay down high-rate debt such as credit cards and other loans.Â
ItÂs easy to qualify for a NextStudent Consolidation Loan, too. There are no credit checks or co-signers required, and there are no application fees. Borrowers can apply online or call a NextStudent Education Finance Advisor for help in completing the application.
ÂOur motto is Âcollege funding made simpleÂ and with our electronic signature and super-low rates, thereÂs simply no easier way to consolidate federal student loans,Â adds Fenstermaker. ÂWe just launched the service last week, and already customers are telling us we have the fastest and most convenient process theyÂve ever seen.Â
