30 Student loan consolidation topics What is a student consolidation loan How do I qualify? What is the current loan interest rate? Terms Calculating the interest rate Borrower benefits Borrower eligibility Eligible loan types Repayment Plans Your Premier Solutions Advisors Questions and Answers
31 What is a student consolidation loan? Debt management tool Combines multiple eligible student loans into a single new loan Fixed interest rate Lower monthly payment longer repayment term Flexible repayment terms No application or processing fees No prepayment penalties Interest may be tax deductible
32 How do I qualify? If you have several federal student loans and pay several different variable interest rates, you can lock into a single, fixed interest rate for the life of your loan.
33 Today s Consolidation Marketplace Interest rates Current fixed interest rate* Stafford 6.8% PLUS Loans (FFELP) 8.5% *For loans disbursed on or after July 1, 2006 Current variable interest rates* Stafford loans during grace 6.54% Stafford loans during repayment 7.14% * For loans disbursed before July 1, Effective through June 30, Previous years rates Stafford loans: grace 4.70% 2.77% 2.82% 3.46% Stafford loans: repayment 5.30% 3.37% 3.42% 4.06% Consolidation rate** 5.375% 3.50% 3.50% 4.125% **Assumes consolidation loan made of Stafford loans in repayment (Stafford loans disbursed on or after July 1, 1998).
34 Today s Consolidation Marketplace Terms Term is determined based on balance $7, $9, Years $10, $19, Years $20, $39, Years* $40, $59, Years $60, Years Term is determined based on Consolidation Loan balance plus balances of other education loans. * A new borrower on or after October 7, 1998 with an outstanding principal and interest balance of more than $30,000 may select an extended repayment schedule of 25 years.
35 Calculating the interest rate Interest rate is calculated using the weighted average method: Fixed Rate vs. Variable Rate Term is based on balance
36 Weighted Average example Step 1 Multiply the outstanding balance of each loan to be consolidated by that loan s current interest rate. A variable rate loan should be included in the calculation at the rate at which the loan is currently accruing. Loan #1: $3,500 x 7% = $245 Loan #2: $3,200 x 5% = $160 Loan #3: $5,500 x 9% = $495
37 Weighted Average example (cont d) Step 2 Add the result of Step 1 and divide the sum by the outstanding balance of all loans being consolidated. $245 + $160 + $495 + $900 $3,500 + $3,200 + $5,500 = $12,200 $900 / $12,200 = or 7.377%
38 Weighted Average example (cont d) Step 3 Round the result of Step 2 up to the nearest eighth of one percent, not to exceed 8.25% 7.377% is rounded to 7.5%
39 Nelnet loan consolidation services Nelnet Borrower benefits 0.25% interest rate reduction if monthly payment is auto-debited from checking or savings account. 1% interest rate reduction after 36 initial on-time regular payments. No payments for 6 months

42 Repayment Plans You may choose from the following repayment plans: Standard, Graduated, and Income Sensitive. In addition, you may be eligible to choose an Extended repayment term of up to 25 years if you have loans totaling over $30,000.
43 Repayment Plans Standard Repayment. All Nelnet Consolidation Loans begin with the Standard repayment plan. This program requires a minimum monthly payment of $50. Borrowers start out in Standard repayment, but may request an alternate payment option. This is the most popular choice.
44 Repayment Plans Graduated Repayment. Designed for students who require more discretionary income to get started after college. Graduated repayment begins with a lower monthly payment that gradually increases every two years until your loan is paid off.
45 Repayment Plans Income Sensitive Repayment. Income Sensitive repayment bases monthly payments on an individual's monthly income. This schedule is for a period of 12 months, and is ideal for borrowers who expect their income, thus their ability to make higher monthly payments, to rise with time. To apply, and receive approval for this repayment option, you must submit one month's pay stubs from your most recent, consecutive paychecks (i.e., pay stubs from part of April and part of June would not be acceptable) in order to determine your monthly payment amount. If the appropriate documentation is not received by the time of disclosure, you will be assigned a Standard Repayment plan. Eligibility for the Income Sensitive repayment plan will be determined on a case-by-case basis. You may request to renew this plan annually by documenting your current monthly income.
46 Repayment Plans The Nelnet Private Loan Consolidation program only allows the Standard Repayment option. At this time, Graduated, Income sensitive, and Extended payment plans are unavailable.
