WSFS Bank offers refinancing on both high-interest Parent PLUS loans and private parent loans. The application takes under 15 minutes, and you can refinance amounts from $2,000 to $175,000 with terms from 5 to 15 years. In addition, there is no origination fee, and you can choose from fixed and variable rate options:
Parent Plus loan consolidation is available in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
The bank requires borrowers who are unemployed or making $0 annually to have a cosigner. Cosigners can apply for a release after 12 consecutive on-time principal and interest payments during the repayment period.
WSFS Bank has a low minimum loan requirement. Borrowers can refinance as little as $2,000, which is lower than industry average of approximately $5,000.
As far as maximum loan amounts, borrowers can choose to refinance up to $125,000 in undergraduate debt and up to $175,000 in graduate debt.
Those who sign up to make automatic payments from their WSFS Bank checking account will receive an interest rate reduction of 0.25 percent.
WSFS Bank does not charge an origination fee for its services. This is unique as most companies and lenders that offer loan products and loan refinancing products charge this fee.
WSFS Bank's student loan consolidation services are only available in the following states:
If you don't reside in any of the states listed above, you will need to research other student loan refinancing options available in your state of residence.
The WSFS Bank website does not offer any information on the following:
WSFS Bank does provide rates based on a credit tier on its website, but it is unclear what the credit tiers are based on and what credit score is needed to not only qualify for the lowest rate, but for WSFS Bank student loan consolidation overall.
Although a credit score requirement isn't made available, a high credit score may be required to qualify based on the low rate range offered by the company, and because of the fact that the company is a bank — banks and credit unions generally have higher credit score requirements.
While WSFS Bank doesn't charge a loan origination fee, it is unclear whether or not the bank charges an application fee or prepayment penalty fee.
