Stafford loans do not require a credit check.  Remember that there are limits to how much you can borrow based on what year of college you are in.  The following link gives them based on year of school and your status (dependent vs independent student).  You best bet is to contact the financial aid department of your school.  They will best be able to give you your options based on your EFC (estimated family contribution)
