No credit is not as bad as poor credit or a lot of negative marks.

With a limited credit history, you will need either a strong income with solid work history, or healthy cash reserves to cover several months of rent.

That's what I look for to qualify college student renters.

I can speak for how the protocol is done by me, in the Cherry Hill area. Once a meeting of the minds is made, leases will then be prepared.
