Can Yrefy refinance my high-interest rate Private education loans, if I have poor credit?
YES! Yrefy is not your traditional lender, credit decisions are not made solely on credit score. Yrefy understands that having delinquent or defaulted private education loans can have a negative impact to your credit score. Therefore, we look at other factors unique to each borrower’s and co-borrower’s financial situation, we finance customers with low credit scores.
- A fixed interest rate remains the same throughout the life of the loan. This means that once you refinance, your new loan interest will not change.
- A variable interest rate may fluctuate over the life of the loan.
100% of Yrefy private refinance loans are fixed interest rate loans, same monthly payment.
What makes me a good candidate for Yrefy Private Education Loan Refinance Program?

Why do I owe more on my private loan today, even though I’ve been making payments?
This is what happens when your monthly payment, doesn’t cover the interest your loan is accruing. This is due to a reduced payment program. This results in a loans principal going up every month, even while you are making payment. This is referred to as Negative Amortization, or Neg-Am.
