Information on How to Build and Improve Your Credit

There are lots of gimmicks and hype out there that claim to get you good credit, or how to improve your credit, some with "quick-fix" promises.  Like anything else in life, if it sounds too good to be true, run!

Instead, it's important to start building a good credit history one step at a time.  (To qualify for a private student loan, good credit is a must. If you don't have good credit, you'll need a cosigner with good credit to sign your student loan application with you.)
