BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Today, Cognition Financial announced the launch of Start Student Loan (startstudentloan.com), the first private student loan to offer borrowers a 0% introductory APR and the ability to transfer balances of other private student loans into this 0% introductory APR loan.

“As we have been for decades, we continually look for opportunities to innovate to help families better afford their education. Start is the first private student loan to provide borrowers with a six month interest-free period.
