Will my application be rejected because of a low credit score?

CUEE understands that there are several factors that can negatively affect your credit score (hospital bills, student loans, etc.) We run a credit report but we do not base our final decision solely on your credit score. CUEE looks at several factors to determine whether you are approved for a loan.
