Student loan rates will be dropping, but my lender doesnt offer consolidation!? AES success Loan.?

So I have 3 small student loans with AES success. Since I heard student loan rates dropping, I was planing on consolidating and making it fixed. However, they do not offer that service! Is it possible to go through a different lender to consolidate the loan? any suggestions?

    The loan rates are only dropping on those federal Stafford loans that you took out that have a variable interest rate associated with them. Any loan that was disbursed after July 1, 2006 has a fixed 6.8% rate, and that rate is not changing.

    If you have variable rate Staffords from prior to July 1, 2006, then yes the rate is going to drop and by consolidating them after July 1, 2008 you can lock it in as a fixed rate loan at just over 3% less than your current rate. Pretty good deal.

    The hard part is finding a lender as most FFELP lenders have abandoned the consolidation ship. Your best bet is to consolidate those loans through the government’s Direct Lending program with a Federal Consolidation loan.

    This is the website for the govt’s site. Keep in mind that if you include other fixed rate federal loans that the calculation for your new fixed rate will be done on a weighted average. You should speak to a loan rep about this process and its affects, or only process variable rate loans in the consolidation.

    a lot about this, such as you wrote the e-book in
