College Students, The Time is NOW to Build Your Credit Score

According to a U.S. News nationwide survey of college students, 44% of respondents were not taught about the importance of credit usage by their parents or teachers, and nearly one-third did not know what their credit score is. And as many of these young adults will soon realize, their credit score is important.

Credit follows you your whole life and you can’t start over. It’s what enables you to get a cell phone, utilities, insurance, and a car loan. And as a college student, you may have a low or no credit score – this could be from lack of credit history or late payments on a loan, medical bill or credit card.

But what if you could get on track and start building your credit score NOW? Solutions like RentReporters can help you get there by reporting your on time rent payments to TransUnion. The process is simple – sign up for an account, we verify your rent payments, and then we report your payments to TransUnion.
