Bullet Image. Start of Page Links. Item 1 Consolidation Loans
The Higher Education Act (HEA) provides a loan consolidation program under both the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) and Direct Loan Program. These programs simplify loan repayment by combining several types of federal education loans that may have different terms and repayment schedules or may have been made by different lenders into one new loan that may potentially have lower interest rates than one or more of the underlying loans.
