Connecting with Schools

The Direct Consolidation Loan program puts the power of choice in your student loan customers' hands. It gives them the opportunity to select qualifying loans to be consolidated and paid off with a new Direct Consolidation loan, for which only one monthly payment is required. And as one of four servicers students can select from to service their new Direct Consolidation loan, Great Lakes has many tools and resources available to support you as you counsel your student loan customers on making educated decisions about whether Direct Consolidation is right for them.
