1 Annual percentage rates (APRs) assume you are enrolled in and maintain auto-debit payments from the date of origination. Enrolling in auto-debit results in a 0.25% interest rate reduction. Without enrolling in auto-debit, the rate will range from 3.50% APR to 7.50% APR. Not all borrowers receive the lowest rate. If you are approved for a loan, the rate offered will depend on your credit profile and the term you select and will be within the ranges shown above assuming the auto-debit interest rate reduction applies.
If you're looking to refinance your education loans, there are several reasons why one or two cosigners may be beneficial to you.
CreditworthinessIf you have limited or average credit, a cosigner or two who meet the credit and underwriting criteria can help you qualify for a Reset Loan.
Credit Score and RatesIf you qualify for the Reset Loan but not our best rates, a cosigner with a higher credit score than yours can help you receive a lower rate.
We're different than other lenders. When a loan application has cosigners, Iowa Student Loan only looks at the highest FICO score between the applicant and the cosigners to determine the rate for the loan.
Debt-to-Income RatioOne reason many otherwise creditworthy borrowers are denied refinancing opportunities is due to the applicant's debt-to-income ratio. This ratio is calculated by dividing your monthly debt payments by your monthly income.
If you do not meet our debt-to-income ratio but apply with one or more creditworthy cosigners — those who meet the credit and underwriting criteria — we include their information to determine if the debt-to-income ratio requirements are met.

The Reset Loan is for creditworthy borrowers (those who meet the underwriting and credit criteria). Applicants who do not meet the underwriting and credit criterial on their own may apply with one or more creditworthy cosigners.
Borrowers and cosigners cannot have defaulted on any private or government student loan. In addition, borrowers and cosigners must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Cosigners must reside in the United States. Military addresses are considered U.S. addresses if designated as an APO or FPO.
To qualify for the Reset Loan, you or your cosigners must:
Please note that the list of criteria above may not be exhaustive. Iowa Student Loan may require you or your cosigners to meet additional criteria in order to qualify for a loan. Iowa Student Loan reserves the right to change the list of criteria in any way from time to time.
Borrowers may refinance the following loan types into the Reset Loan:
Consumer loans, such as those used to attend coding bootcamps or other specialized training, are not eligible to be refinanced in a Reset Loan.
This loan must be:
The following features may be available to Reset Loan borrowers.
Reset Loan borrowers can earn a 0.25% interest rate reduction1 when they sign up to have principal and interest payments automatically withdrawn from a checking or savings account using our auto-debit program.
Iowa Student Loan recognizes and appreciates the sacrifices made by members of the military and their families. To assist service members with their student loan, we offer the Iowa Student Loan Armed Forces Interest Reduction Program.
In the unfortunate event of a borrower's death or qualifying total and permanent disability, Iowa Student Loan will forgive the loan and not require cosigners or the borrower's estate to satisfy the loan obligation.
In addition, if a cosigner suffers a qualifying total and permanent disability, Iowa Student Loan will release the cosigner from his or her obligation. In the event of a cosigner's death or qualifying total and permanent disability, the borrower will not be required to find a new cosigner for an existing loan.
Please consult a tax professional or the IRS for information about possible tax consequences of loan forgiveness.
1 The 0.25% interest rate reduction will apply to loans once payments begin to be automatically deducted. The reduction will remain in effect as long as automatic payments continue without interruption during the repayment period. The 0.25% interest rate reduction will not lower the monthly payment amount but will instead reduce the interest amount that accrues. The interest rate reduction will be suspended during approved assistance or if automatic payments are rejected due to insufficient funds.

Identity theft occurs when someone unlawfully obtains your personal information with the intent to commit fraud. Information such as your name, date of birth, Social Security number and mother's maiden name can help a thief impersonate another individual. Once thieves have access to this information, they can commit different kinds of fraud, including accessing bank accounts, obtaining loans, making purchases, even securing employment and obtaining health care under a false identity.
We work hard to safeguard your personal information. However, customer awareness is an important component of protecting yourself from this crime.
You need to constantly protect yourself from email and Internet fraud, just as you do from identity theft. You wouldn't give your credit card to a person you don't trust. In the same vein, you should never trust your personal contact or account information to a website that does not provide a secure encrypted connection.
If you get an email or pop-up message asking for personal or financial information, do not reply and do not select any links in the message. Legitimate companies don't ask for this information through email. If you are concerned about your account, contact the organization mentioned in the email using a telephone number you know to be genuine or open a new Internet browser session and type in the company's correct Web address yourself. Don't cut and paste the link from the message into your Internet browser — thieves can make links that appear to go to a legitimate address but that actually send you to a different site.
For more information about identity theft and other tips on how to protect yourself and your information, please visit the following websites.
Note: Selecting the links below will take you away from our website.
If you suspect fraudulent activity on your account with us:
Fraud alerts can help prevent an identity thief from opening more accounts in your name. Contact any of the three consumer reporting agencies below to place a fraud alert on your credit report. You only need to contact one of the three agencies to place an alert. The company you call is required to contact the other two, which will place an alert on their versions of your report too. If you do not receive a confirmation from an agency, you should contact that agency directly to place a fraud alert.
Innovis does not share fraud alert information with any other credit reporting agency. To place a fraud alert on your credit report with Innovis, please use the following information:
Once you place the fraud alert on your file, you're entitled to order one free copy of your credit report from Equifax, Experian and TransUnion, and, if you ask, only the last four digits of your Social Security number will appear on your credit reports. (Innovis may charge a fee to issue a copy of your credit report.) Once you get your credit reports, review them carefully. Look for inquiries from companies you haven't contacted, accounts you didn't open and debts on your accounts that you can't explain. Check that information like your Social Security number, address(es), name or initials, and employers are correct. If you find fraudulent or inaccurate information, contact the credit reporting agencies for information on how to get it removed.
Continue to check your credit reports periodically, especially for the first year after you discover the identity theft, to make sure no new fraudulent activity has occurred.
Visit the FTC Consumer Information site and www.stopfraud.gov to learn more about online fraud and identity theft.
Remember, even if you are not a victim of identity theft, you can still review your credit reports for accuracy free annually. Each of the major national consumer reporting agencies are required by federal law to provide you with a free copy of your credit report at your request once every 12 months. Obtain a free copy of your report at www.annualcreditreport.com.
