It means you likely won't be approved for any credit. A mortgage typically requires 620. Car loans and credit cards will be harder to get also. If you can get a loan you will pay a higher interest rate. Some room for improvement then. Good luck!

It means you have credit that would be equal to getting a D on your term paper. It isn't good. It won't qualify you for a mortgage, loan or any credit card. Keep working on it.

It's not bad, but it needs improvement. You want to get into the 700 range. The easiest way to give your credit score a quick boost, is to pay your debts down as much as you can. Continue to pay bills on time. View my source and it will give you further insight into how you can repair your score (my source is from the education tab on the official FICO website) good luck!
