Can you refinance a private student loan with federal?

Postby sno7 » Mon Feb 02, 2015 4:42 am

Right now, I'm on student visa, but everyone else in my family is a US citizen, and, long story short, I'll get my green card in about 3 years.

The thing is, I've already applied to several law schools this cycle and want to attend this fall if I get accepted to any school that is worth attending.

If I get a loan this year from a private lender, can I later refinance it with a federal loan after I become a permanent resident?

Unfortunately, no.
