You can request your credit score from any of the three major credit bureaus – Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax. You can contact each credit bureau and request your FICO score from each of the credit bureaus, or you can contact only one of the credit bureaus and request all three credit scores from one bureau as most bureaus will offer you such option.
