Re: raising your score

First, pay off your collection account.

Second, it doesnt look like you have any revolving loans (credit cards).  You need a combination of installment loans and revolving loans to have an optimum score.  Open a credit card, and if you can't qualify for one, open a secured credit card and pay it off in full each month.
