Is it possible to refinance both federal and private student loans?

Absolutely. When considering refinancing your federal student loans, it is important to review the current protections and benefits you are granted with those loans and understand which of those you may be giving up when refinancing with a private lender like Earnest.

Note: If you have a Sallie Mae loan, we may not be able to refinance it. Earnest was recently acquired by Navient as an independent subsidiary, and Sallie Mae has a non-compete agreement in place with Navient. For more information, please contact our Client Happiness team at
