Consolidating student loans and private loans
Most borrowers will need a cosigner for this loan to meet credit, employment, and debt-to-income requirements.Rates are typically higher without a cosigner; however, borrowers that meet these requirements on their own do not need a cosigner (but may still choose to apply with a cosigner).Any adult who meets the credit and citizenship requirements can be a cosigner for a private student loan.
The borrower and any cosigner share responsibility for ensuring that the loan is repaid.
In the event of the death or total and permanent disability of the borrower, the loan can be forgiven and the cosigner won’t be responsible for repayment.
A cosigner may be released from the loan if the student borrower is a U. citizen and contacts Wells Fargo to request release of the cosigner.

A cosigner is someone who shares responsibility with the borrower for repaying the loan.
The cosigner doesn’t have to be a relative; he or she can be any adult who meets the eligibility requirements.
When you consolidate multiple student loans or refinance a single student loan, you may receive a lower monthly payment with a reduced interest rate or an extended repayment term.
Keep in mind that extending your repayment term may increase the amount of interest you pay over the life of the loan.
Discounts reduce the amount of interest you pay over the life of the loan.
The automatic payment discount may not change your monthly payment amount depending on the type of loan you receive, but may reduce the number of payments or reduce the amount of your final payment.
