CREDIT SCORES is designed to teach students about the credit scoring systems that creditors and insurance companies use to decide whether to issue credit cards, auto loans, mortgages, insurance policies and phone services, and on what terms. A higher credit score is taken to mean less risk, which in turn means you are more likely to get credit or insurance and pay less for it.
