Ever seen a horror movie? Ever read a really scary book? Well, every year students get themselves into credit situations that are about as scary as the worst horror movie you've ever seen...only it's REAL!

Click on the links to the left to learn more about what credit ratings mean and what is a "good credit rating" number, how to establish good credit, how to avoid getting into credit trouble, and what to do if you've got credit problems to fix.
Be smart in the classroom...and be smart about credit!
