I've applied for credit cards and loan approval at my credit union and have been denied due to low credit score. I don't know what else to do to establish credit.

In addition to the other advice, try to get a secured credit card or worst case try to get an unsecured card from the subrime lenders.

Try going to a jewelry store and finance something. They usually approve low credit. Or finance a piece of furniture. This will help you establish some type of history.
