65% My question represented the already enrolled "college" students, not just "students", which would have to be ALL the students, which would include every school student in the Nation.

College students can obtain credit cards just like other people. Sometimes it can be more difficult to obtain a credit card as a college student because they do not have as much credit built up. The best approach would be to open up a savings/checking account at a local bank. Once one is opened, they will usually offer the person a credit card as well. If that does not work, looking at the main credit card companies (Visa, Master Card, Discover Card, and American Express) and finding their college student section, will give you options for college students, however, they usually have very high interest rates.

College students are regularly courted by credit card companies who hope to gain loyal customers. Credit card companies also know that college students spend money - in restaurants, movie theaters, at malls, and for living expenses. Targeting college students almost guarantees the credit card companies that issued cards will be used. Having a student card helps some students get through the college years simply because they can charge whatever they can't afford to pay for with cash. Some credit cards are specifically designed for college students. However, the best ones require that the student has a good credit rating. Some of these credit cards offer generous reward programs and low interest rates. However, some of the interest rates are low introductory rates that climb significantly once the introductory period is over. Students should read all of the fine print before obtaining a credit card to ensure that they understand all of the terms and conditions. Many of the student cards have generous cash back programs. Not only can students earn cash back on everyday purchases like gas and groceries, but some cards offer the reward for money spent on utilities and cable television. Students who pay off the balance each month can earn significant rewards by charging virtually everything. However, this method of earning rewards requires a high level of self-discipline. Not all college students are able to qualify for credit on their own. Sometimes, parents issue students cards with low credit limits. Some parents even pay the credit card bills; others let the student use the card with the understanding that he or she pays the monthly bill. Some students have gotten into financial trouble using credit cards in college, thinking they were going to earn much more money than they did. Thinking they would pay off the card once they graduated and obtained their dream jobs, some college students ran up extremely high credit card bills. Unfortunately, they did not earn the amount they thought they would earn immediately after graduation. Many of these students now advise other college students to curtail spending, especially when using credit cards. Students have an excellent opportunity to build a good credit record by using student cards that the credit card companies are anxious to issue. However, just like anyone else who uses a credit card, students need to be careful and exercise good judgment and self-discipline.

Who is considered a junior in college?A full college schedule requires 15 credit hours per semester, 30 credits per scholastic year: thus a sophomore would have earned 60 credits and a student carrying credit hours in excess of 60 credit hours would be conisdered a junior in college.

If I am understanding the question correctly, the credit distribution is not the same as you would find in high school. In other words, preparing for college (college prep) would require a certain number of credits in specified areas, such as English, math, foreign language, lab science etc. The credit distribution in college in strictly dependent on the students program of study. Thus, the credit distribution for a psychology major, would be much different than a program of study in engineering. In addition, it would also depend on the college or university's preference as to whether - for example - the approach is that of a bachelors of arts (BA) or bachelor and science (BS) degree. Thus, you would have to look at each individual major, within each individual college or university, and the preference - if applicable - of the department offering the program of study.

The best thing to do would be to ask in your own college union for their advice because they often have listings of good summer jobs for their students.
