My credit score is low and I need to improve it, but not sure how or why it's so low?

There aren't any bad things still on my credit, so why is it so low at 635 and what can I do to raise it?

There are a surprising number of things that can impact your credit score that many people don't realize. The amount you owe in relation to your available credit is one.
