I am an adult student who has a charge-off on her credit report. That is, I have credit card debt that is unpaid and is now "bad debt." Will this affect my ability to get a student loan?

Potentially. Most federal student loans are not credit-dependent, so you may still qualify for those. Any private loans would require a thorough credit check and you may not be approved.
