Some of you may remember my post about Sallie Mae No Longer Consolidating Student Loans.

[The following was provided by Mark Kantrowitz and expanded by NASFAA.]

Updated List Of Lenders Changing Loan Practices

In the wake of the subprime mortgage market turmoil and lender subsidy
cuts by Congress, student loan providers are modifying their business
practices to adapt to a changing market. This following is a list of
lenders who have changed their practices due to the recent changes.
This list is a work in progress and NASFAA will continue to update it
as we receive and verify information. If you have heard of lenders
changing their practices and you don’t see them on this list or see
any inaccurate information on this list, please notify NASFAA by
emailing web@nasfaa.org. We will keep the list as up to date and
accurate as possible.
