What is Credit?

Before delving deeper, let's unpack what credit actually means. Credit is essentially trust—the trust a lender places in you to repay what you borrow. Your ability to manage credit is reflected in your credit score, which signals your financial reliability to potential lenders, employers, and landlords.

The Anatomy of a Credit Score

Your credit score is a three-digit number that’s derived from your credit history. Think of it as your financial report card, with grades based on:

  • Payment History
  • Amounts Owed
  • Length of Credit History
  • New Credit
  • Types of Credit in Use

This course will explore each component and how it affects your overall credit health.
