If you have a part time job you can open a student unsecured credit card. Then at all times keep your balance below 30% of your credit limit. Make all payments on time. If you cannot get a unsecured card then get a secured card. A secured card is where you deposit say $200 with a bank or credit union. Try hard and limit the amont of times you pull your credit. This is a good start. Now it's time for you to read up on credit scores on this site to increase your knowledge. Good Luck.
