For students. Only average credit score required.
If you are a young student and haven’t built a good credit score yet, this credit card can be an excellent choice for you. Generally speaking, having an average or fair credit score (mid 500s or higher) will be enough. If you on the other hand have messed up your credit rating and fallen down to a bad credit score (below mid 500s) you might find it difficult to be approved for this one.

Also, you don’t need an established credit history. As a matter of fact, many students use the Journey Student Rewards credit card to build a credit history while in college.
