Helpful Tips

  • Credit, modeled by your credit score, is used by financial institutions, businesses, and other entities to determine your ability to borrow and pay back money responsibly.
  • Credit is an incredibly helpful tool to help you accomplish your future goals, like buying a car, renting an apartment, and taking out loans. But credit takes time to build.
  • Apply for a low-interest rate, low limit student credit card, and use it wisely to start building credit safely. By the time you graduate, you'll have a great credit score that you can continue to build on when you begin to pay your student loans back.
  • Our Student Mastercard is designed to help you get started building credit responsibly. You do not need a previous credit history or a cosigner to apply for the Student Mastercard. If you’re interested in applying for any of our other credit card options, additional qualifications apply, and previous credit history will be required.
  • You can earn rewards by using your new Student Rewards Mastercard® on everyday purchases. $1 spent is 1 point earned. Plus, earn 2 points for each $1 spent on fuel and grocery purchases.
