Distinguished education and NOLA culture

Tulane provides a one-of-a-kind college experience

Tulane University offers exceptional academic programs in a variety of fields to ensure students have every advantage while launching the career of their choosing—whether that be with an MBA from A.B. Freeman School of Business, a JD from Tulane University Law School, an MD from the Tulane School of Medicine, or one of the innovative master’s programs from the Tulane School of Architecture.

Since Hurricane Katrina devastated the city a decade ago, Tulane has roared back. Its primary campus is located in Uptown New Orleans, with the Health Sciences campus located in downtown New Orleans. Surrounded by one of America’s most unique cultures, it’s no surprise that Tulane excels in the fine arts, showcasing the world-class Newcomb Art Museum and a variety of performing arts exhibitions.

Behind the scenes of Tulane student loan refinancing

Get the facts before making any decisions

How should I choose a student loan refinancing provider?

When comparing loans, take into account the rates you’re offered, as well as factors like flexibility and customer service from the loan provider. Many companies will outsource your loan servicing.

Which type of loans can I refinance?

You can refinance both Federal and private student loans with Earnest. You’ll effectively consolidate all your loans into one new, lower rate Earnest loan.

What are the benefits of refinancing my student loan(s)?

Many people are able to refinance into much lower interest rates, saving them thousands, if not tens of thousands, of dollars. In addition, Earnest offers in-house support for the life of your loan and a seamless technology platform to manage your loan.

Can I refinance loans that have previously been consolidated or refinanced?

Yes. Previous refinancing or consolidation does not affect the eligibility of your application.

Who should consider refinancing with Earnest?

Refinancing is a great solution for employed or soon-to-be-employed graduates who have high-interest, unsubsidized Direct Loans, Graduate PLUS loans, and/or private loans.

What is the difference between consolidation and refinancing?

Consolidation simply combines multiple student loans into one. That means one monthly payment instead of having to juggle many different ones, sometimes with multiple servicers. When you consolidate, your interest rate will be a weighted average of the interest rates on the loans you combine. You won’t save money— but it can make life easier by reducing the amount of time you spend managing different payments.

Refinancing can be done with one loan or several, and involves getting a new loan with a different (usually lower) rate than before, due to changes in your financial situation. When you refinance, you typically work with a company to pay off the original loan(s) and get a new unified loan at a lower rate.
