Do payments on a loan count towards my credit?
Making regular, on-time payments on student loans will help build credit. If you've used only one type of credit before, like a credit card, then having a student loan is good for your score because it helps your credit mix. But that's a smaller score factor, so it's not worth taking out a loan you can't afford just to have a mix of credit types.
