Can students have credit cards?

Rounding it up

  • As long as you meet the requirements of your province, you’ll be able to apply for a credit card even as a student.

  • With a card in hand, you can get a head start on establishing a strong credit history.

  • Credit cards also help you make purchases that are otherwise difficult to buy in one swipe, but ensure you pay back what you owe to avoid steep fees.

  • If you’re nervous about getting your first credit card, consider signing up for a joint account or with a guarantor.
