Yes, your score will go up next time the card reports to the bureaus because you reduced your utilization, however, always be sure to let one credit card report a small balance each month, if not your scores will be dinged for not showing any revolving activity. You do not have to carry the balance over, just let a small balance report at reporting time, (usually around statement time) then pay it off before the due date.
