CONVERSION DATE, dependent upon usage, there are likely many definitions varying within the industries in which the term is being used. Basically, it is a date on which an asset is converted into a similarly valued but different asset.

CONSOLIDATION is similar to refinancing, but there is no loan fee. It simplifies loan repayment by combining several types of federal education loans into one new loan. (In the case of Direct Loan consolidation, the interest rate may be lower than one or more of the underlying loans.).
