Credit cards for international students in the US?

Postby faruklmu » Sun Sep 29, 2013 1:48 pm

Hello everyone,

I came to US just one month ago and doing my MSc in Electrical Engineering. I have a part time job on-campus. I am wondering whether it would be possible for me to apply for a credit card as an international student. I have my SSN and a direct deposit is set to a bank. Please let me know.
