Do Student Loans Affect Your Credit Score – Most Popular?
Hello Future Millionaires!
Have you ever wondered how do student loans affect your credit? Well, the answer may surprise you.
Many students believe that paying off your student loans will mean your credit score jumps into the elite 800 range, but in reality, some may actually see a DIP DOWN IN SCORE!
The reason for this, student loans are not viewed in the same way as credit cards and therefore have a different impact on your credit score.
Student loans are not what the nerd call “revolving lines of credit.” Which basically means that you get the same access to credit every month.
Instead, student loans are viewed as “installment accounts.”
“Alvy, your throwing around a lot of fancy words.”
Basically, the credit companies (Experian, Transunion, and Equifax) see a paid off student loan account and think “Well duh you paid it off, that was your obligation.”
I never tell people to delay paying off your student loans but it is important to know how your student loans will affect your credit score and show up on your credit report.
In this video, I go in-depth about how student loans affect your credit and pull up an article from the pros over at Experian and break it all down.
Hope you enjoy 🙂

A BIT ABOUT ME:
For those of you that are new to my channel, I am a personal finance nerd! I love talking about all things budgets, interest rates, and anything that relates to personal wealth.
Growing up, I saw, first-hand, that money is a powerful thing, that is when there is not enough of it. I grew up thinking that the only way that I was going to be well-off was by hitting the lottery or banking on social security at retirement age. Over the last few years, I have undergone a metamorphosis to learn how I, and I alone, control my money and my overall wealth. I started this channel to help others who want to become first-generation millionaires, end the cycle of poverty that has ridden their families, and educate the next generation that money is something that works for US, not the other way around.
