I am a 22 year old student and I am trying to find a good card. All of them that I have looked at so far have very high rates. Will I have to pay interest if I pay my bill before the due date?

Student cards generally have high rates unfortunately. Really unless you will always pay the bill in full every month, you should avoid them.

If you do pay in full before the due date, you won't be charged interest. Anything after that and you will be paying interest going back to the dates of purchases.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred
