I'm a college student with student loans. How can I raise my credit?
So I have about 13k in student loans and a credit score of 570. I have a capital one credit card and have paid off two minor things that were in collections. However I did not have them remove it from my credit report. (I just wanted the annoying phone calls to stop) Since then I was informed of Credit Karma and have been monitoring my credit. With a high amount of student loans and a credit card with a low limit how can I start to raise my credit score?
