The best student credit cards are typically those that offer credit to people that have little to no credit history, do not have a job and are currently enrolled in college or university.
Although I highly caution college students about taking on credit card debt, it can be a good idea to start building a credit history by using a credit card AND PAYING IT OFF IN FULL EACH MONTH.
Of course, if student loans, family or outside support and even employment income cannot cover the cost of going to school you might need to take on some credit card debt to fund your education.
I understand that a post-secondary education can be very expensive (I worked two jobs and had many different entrepreneurial ventures and I still graduated with over $20,000 in student loan debt which is now all paid off by the way) and taking on debt is a necessary evil for some. Please use credit responsibly to fund your education… not your spring break trip to Panama City, Florida (use a travel rewards credit card for that).
I also strongly encourage you to explore some ways to make extra money.
If you are a student and are looking for college friendly credit cards, here are the best options.
