About FICO® Scores
A FICO® Score is a three-digit number based on the information in your credit reports. It helps lenders determine how likely you are to repay a loan. This, in turn, affects how much you can borrow, how many months you have to repay, and how much it will cost (the interest rate). Several factors contribute to your credit score, including payment history, amounts owed, length of credit history, credit mix, and new credit inquiries.
