What are the requirements for approval for a student credit card?

Approval policies and requirements vary depending on the issuing bank or terms and conditions of a particular card. Some credit cards for students require a co-signer for approval, some don’t and may help you establish your own credit history. Sometimes good or excellent credit is needed to qualify for a student credit card. You must be at least 18 years of age and currently enrolled as college student. If you are looking for an offer with minimum requirements for approval, consider prepaid debit cards. They give 100% guaranteed approval with no credit check, they are safer than credit cards, as you do not have an outstanding balance, you can only spend what you have in the account.
