Our Student Credit Union Program

The Student Credit Union Program is designed to help young people gain financial skills and banking experience, while also providing a convenient way to deposit and withdraw from their savings accounts right at school. We encourage student members to deposit regularly, even in small amounts, and to set short and long-term savings goals.

Student Credit Union branches are staffed by student members from each school; student team members gain experience with cash handling, professionalism, and confidentiality.

Student Credit Union members have access to Online and Mobile Banking. Members aged 14 and older may open a Free Checking account with a Visa™ Debit Card, and direct deposit is available for students with jobs, whose employers offer this benefit.
