University tuition and crappy credit history
November 26, 2007 3:00 PM Subscribe
I'm about to go back to university and I have all of the tuition money for the next 2-3 years (yay me). What's the best way to pay it so that it improves my credit history?

I immigrated to the U.S. fairly recently and have very limited credit history in the U.S.
I have 1 credit card (a crappy one from capital one with a $500 limit) and the few times I've applied for other cards with higher limits/better terms I've been rejected. I have never exceeded the limit, I've never made payments late and I've been generally pretty good about paying as much as I could on it every month.
I'm about to go back to school and I know I can pay the tuition fees right off the bat (no loans, no nothing). Is there any specific way I should go on about doing this that may improve my credit history/score?
