Is There a Credit Check Required for a Direct Consolidation Loan

No. Eligibility for federal student loan consolidation does not depend on the borrower's credit history or credit scores. However, if your federal student loans are in default, you may encounter a few issues. The U.S. Department of Education will let you know what additional steps you need to take in order to qualify.
