You can apply for a student credit card since you are currently a student. After graduation, you can keep using your student card. If you want a cash back credit card, you should consider the Discover it® Student Cash Back card. The card offers 1% cash back on all purchases. You can even get 5% cash back (up to the quarterly maximum) if you enroll in rotating categories every quarter.
If you are planning to apply for a credit card after your graduation, you should consider credit cards for people without credit history.
