Financial advice for students, June 2022
Knowing how credit scores work is important information for students, according to KHEAA.
Your credit score is a three-digit number that has a lasting effect on your purchasing power. You want to establish a good credit rating so you can tap into resources to buy a car or a house, or if you have another expensive need. A good credit score can open doors, but a bad one can make any transaction or loan more difficult and expensive. That’s why it’s important to learn how credit scores work and how they can affect your lifestyle.
Although there are several scoring methods, the most widely accepted comes from FICO. Your FICO score ranges from 300 to 850. These elements make up your FICO score:
- 35% is based on your payment history. Early payments will have a higher number than on-time payments, which will score higher than late payments.
- 30% is based on outstanding debt. This unpaid debt is the amount you owe on loans, mortgages, credit cards, etc. Having lots of credit cards can hurt your score, especially if you’re close to your borrowing limit.
- 15 percent is based on how long you’ve had credit. The longer you have been borrowing and making payments on time, the better your score.
- 10 percent is based on new credit. Opening multiple new accounts will negatively affect your score. Also, the more inquiries you have on your credit report in a year, the lower your score will be.
- 10% is based on the types of credit you currently have. It helps to have a mix of loan types. If you have a credit card, an installment loan will even out the credit.
