Student loan

I finally got done paying off my student loan today of 1200 left over. Should I expect an increase in my credit score? I have 3 revolving account right now and keep uti at about 6-7%.  Also will the loan still report even though i pif? I heard closed accounts including loans last for 10 years.

Re: Student loan

Congratulations on paying it off!


If that is your only installment loan, you *could* see a small drop.  If you do see an increase, it probably won't be anything dramatic.


Yes, the loan should still report even though it is now paid off.
