Credit Score

Average Credit Score and Credit Score Range


The average credit score in the U.S. is 680

This average varies by state with South Dakota having the highest average (710) and Texas having the lowest (651).

Credit Scores range from 300 to 900

300 indicates horrible credit and 900 indicates perfect credit (I doubt anyone actually has a 900 credit score). You can also have a credit score of 0, but this isn’t included in the range because it would simply mean that you have no credit.
