College students represent a special class of credit card users. On one hand, they have very limited credit histories, most having recently entered adulthood. On the other hand, college students are highly prized by card issuers as they have a strong potential for future income.
As a result, many banks now offer credit cards designed for college students. These products feature less stringent eligibility requirements, simpler terms, and some rewards for spending. Thankfully, the beset cards feature no annual fee.
