Inquiry for federal student loan?

Wil be taking one out in the fall and was wondering if they will pull my credit. From what I have read it doesn't look like they do. Can anyone confirm this?

No federal loans do not do an inquiry, only if you are apping for a private student loan. HTH!

Sure don't. I got... a lot... in college. Smiley Indifferent

 

But no credit pulls. They get the information on what you qualify for with your FAFSA. However, if you do a Parent Plus loan, they will pull your parents' credit. A friend of mine funded her college that way. 

1. Open Sky Secured Credit Card - $200
2. Capital One Platinum Secured Credit Card - $300
3. Amazon Store Card - $800
4. Barclaycard Rewards - $750
5. American Express Blue Cash Everyday - $2000
6. American Express Delta SkyMiles Gold - $9500

Cool. Thanks for the help.

 

Interested to see what it does to my score. I'm sure it will lower it at first but after a few months of making payments maybe it will go a bit higher.

 

Only taking out 6k for the fall/winter semester so will be able to keep it under control. Should be about the same for the next 2-3 years. Could pay cash now but would rather have a bit more flexibility and not feel broke.
