You may be the parent of someone hoping to go to college or you are off to college yourself. Bad credit scores can affect your ability to get a school loan. Like any other kind of loan, you are expected to pay back the money you borrow in full. Having bad credit makes you a higher risk than those with good credit history. Therefore, you are less likely to be approved for a student loan – no matter the reasons!
School financing is black and white. You either qualify, otherwise you do not.
