This card was designed primarily for students, so limited or no credit history shouldn’t be an issue if you have an active college or university email address. Credit card companies tend to be rather generous with students relative to other applicants with similar credit profiles, since students have above-average earning potential and decades of financial needs ahead of them. All a student must do to qualify is demonstrate the independent income or assets needed to pay at least their minimum monthly bill (usually around $10 for student cards). However, if that’s not possible, it’s worth looking into having a parent co-sign. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
The card requires a credit history. CapitalOne will not approve without
