A basic checking account with features just for students.

A checking account can be a safe, convenient place to stash the cash you need for bills and other expenses. 

Student Checking gives you full access to Online and Mobile Banking, a suite of powerful tools and apps that make it easy to track your spending, pay bills, send money, deposit checks and more. And when you need to pay for things, you can swipe your U.S. Bank Visa® Debit Card, write a check, or get cash from a nearby ATM.

Best of all, with Student Checking there's no monthly maintenance fee.
