What is the difference between refinancing and consolidating?


Last Updated: 4/30/2022

Consolidation is a type of refinancing. Consolidation combines two or more loans into a single loan, and in doing so, the rate and/or terms typically change.

You don't have to consolidate in order to refinance though; you can refinance a single loan to lower the interest rate or change the term of that one loan.
