The rate used to calculate interest will be a weighted average interest rate of the underlying NJCLASS loans being consolidated minus 0.50%.
The weighted interest rate for a fixed rate loan is based upon the remaining number of payment dates of the loan and excludes any interest rate benefit reduction or payment arrangement.
If you are including a Variable rate loan in the consolidation, the rate used in the weighted average calculation will be the equivalent fixed-rate program rate in effect at the time of disbursement of that loan.
If you are including a 10-year term loan in the consolidation, the rate used in the weighted average calculation will be the equivalent fixed-rate program rate for the respective 15-year or 20-year loan in effect at the time of disbursement of that loan.
A 1% administrative fee will be added to the approved amount of the Consolidation Loan.
Single point of contact: loans are not sold or transferred.
Borrowers can make payments via auto-debit or by using HESAA's online payment option.
Borrowers may be eligible to enter periods of forbearance.
No prepayment penalty.
