How Should I Send Money Online to My Student?

College students need to pay for books, course fees, meals, incidentals and more – sometimes with little warning. When that happens, you’ll want a simple way to send money fast. Most banks offer various ways to send money electronically, either for a small fee or for free.

 

The following options are available to U.S. Bank customers:


  • If you’re a co-owner of the account, you can transfer money into it from another U.S. Bank account. Transfers are immediate and free of charge. You can also deposit checks into the account for a small fee using your computer and scanner or your iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone.
  • U.S. Bank Pay A Person allows our customers to send money online and requires only the email address or mobile phone number of the recipient. And if you sign up ahead of time, you’ll be ready to send funds more quickly when the situation presents itself.
  • U.S. Bank Visa® Money Transfer is an easy and secure way to send money. Simply use your U.S. Bank Visa® Check Card to send funds to eligible Visa cards issued in the U.S. And you can do it right from your computer or smartphone.
  • Western Union offers fast, reliable options for sending money in the U.S. and abroad. It’s also convenient — there are more than 44,000 agent locations in the U.S. and more than 500,000 locations worldwide, meaning there’s probably a location close to your student’s school. If your student is in the U.S., he or she can also pick up the money at the nearest U.S. Bank branch.
