Can i consolidate my private student loan into a federal, fixed rate one?

No, you cannot consolidate private student loans into federal student loans. Each can be consolidated by themselves, but not together, nor one replaced by the other.

Consolidating may or may not make sense with your private student loans- it depends on the interest rate you agreed to at the time you took out your loans. If your credit score has increased since then, and/or you have a cosiger with good credit, you may be able to lower your interest rate.
NO, I found interesting information about your answer, college loans, scholarships, college grants & partime works here. Good luck!
