Obtaining a credit card while in college provides a number of benefits to those entering the adult world. Whether you need to learn how to budget money, need a convenient way to pay bills, or start building a solid credit history, student credit cards are a great way to do all that and more.

Student credit cards typically have low spending limits, but building that credit history starts immediately. And a good credit history is important later for getting car loans and eventually a mortgage. A student credit card can also be a lifesaver if a financial or personal emergency comes up when you're otherwise short on cash. And let's not forget the convenience of using a student credit card versus always searching for an ATM machine when you're low on time.

When looking for a student credit card, there are a number of factors you should consider. Some of these include:

  • Annual fees. Many student credit card companies charge no annual fees for those in school. However it's imperative to read the fine print and understand what charges you may or may not incur.
  • Interest rates. Credit cards are a great way to build credit but there's a cost associated with borrowing money. Consider what the annual APR is with any credit card you consider before applying. If you plan paying off your credit card every month, then the interest rate isn't a factor but should something come up it's good to know what the charges will be.
  • Penalties. Credit card companies make money when your payment is late or when you go over the credit limit. Understand what penalties exist with any credit card you're considering.
