The Citibank student credit card requirements are that you're at least 18 years old and you have good or better credit. Many college students have limited or no credit history, so if this requirement seems counter-intuitive, that's because it is. Students who go for the Citi Rewards+ Student card will get 7 months of 0% APR and decent ongoing rewards, including 2 rewards points per $1 spent at gas stations and supermarkets on $6,000 per year. Plus, all purchases round up to the nearest factor of 10 rewards points with no limit, which means you'll get 10 points for your $2 coffee. But most student credit cards don't require credit history for approval, and many have decent rewards programs. If you have good credit, you're also more likely to get approved for a non-student card with better rewards.
