As student at Champlain College, you have a unique opportunity to receive your personal credit report, your credit score, and take part in a 20 minute professional analysis, FOR FREE! Free Credit Review Day offers you a great chance to increase your knowledge around credit, fix any possible mistakes on your credit report, make an action plan for improving your credit and potentially save you money and stress in the future!
Students who attend Free Credit Review Day will earn credit for a LEAD Financial Sophistication Workshop!
Free Credit Review Day
- October 5th, 2013, 10:00am - 3:30pm, Skiff Hall
- Look at Your Personal Credit REPORT
- Review your Tri-Merge Credit SCORE
- Consult with a trained volunteer in a private, 20 minute session FREE!! (usual cost: about $25)
- Leave with a personalized action plan on how to maintain, improve or build your credit!
Although it is not a requirement, it is strongly recommended that students have attended the Understanding Credit workshop before attending this event.
Q: How do I sign up?
A: Use the link available through the LEAD Financial Sophistication Calendar and enter in your first name, last name, graduation year and if you have attended an Understanding Credit workshop next to the time you would like to come in for your appointment! You will receive a confirmation e-mail with your appointment time and what you need to bring about a week prior to Free Credit Review Day.
Q: Why is it important that I attend an Understanding Credit workshop before I come to Free Credit Review Day?
A: Understanding Credit will help you understand the basics of your Credit Report and how the system really works. This will help you understand what you are being told in your private meetings. We have seen in the past that when students haven't attended the workshop in advance there are more questions and meetings tend to get cut short due to time constraints.
Q: How is this different from getting my credit report for free at www.annualcreditreport.com?
A: Although you can get your credit report for free, you cannot get your credit score without payment. At this event you will not only get your score, but you will leave with an action plan of how you can improve your credit rating.
