Your checking account is the center of your financial universe. It’s a safe, convenient place to stash the cash you’ll need for bills and other expenses. You can even have your financial aid deposited directly to your account. And when you need to pay for things, you can go online, swipe your debit card, write a check, or withdraw cash from a nearby ATM.
Our Student Checking account is a great choice for most college students, but U.S. Bank has other checking account choices too, so you can find the best fit for your own financial needs.
Our Student Checking account is both affordable and convenient.
