Yes, your credit score can have an impact on your ability to get a student loan. When applying for a private student loan, lenders often consider the borrower's creditworthiness. A higher credit score can increase your chances of getting approved for a loan and may also lead to more favorable loan terms, including lower interest rates. On the other hand, if your credit score is low, it can make it more difficult to qualify for a student loan or may result in higher interest rates. It's important to note that federal student loans do not require a credit check, so they are not impacted by your credit score.
