What's in Your Credit Score?

Your credit report information is used to determine your credit score. Your credit score is based on a mathematical calculation that estimates how likely you are to repay a new loan based on your past history. Credit scores typically range between 300 and 850, and scores higher than 720 show responsible debt management. To learn more about your credit score, visit myFICO.com.
