Your Introduction to College Banking 101

Whether you’re a returning college student or a first-year freshman, there are many items on your to-do list to complete before the next semester starts.

Choosing a college or university can be a difficult decision, as many factors will come into play. With the expenses you will incur while away at school, having immediate access to cash is a must. Plus, easy access to your money should be as easy as possible for your on-the-go lifestyle.

Checking for Students

Opening a checking account online that is just right for students is a practical solution for clients who are just starting out. Consider your banking needs and review your options. Opening a checking account that’s designed for students should include things such as free eBanking, mobile banking, online bill pay, mobile deposit, and much more.

Plus, with a First Bank Debit Mastercard®, your student will have access to over 55,000 surcharge-free Allpoint® Network ATM locations around the world*, including 40,000 in the United States. In fact, approximately one out of every 12 ATMs in the U.S. now participates in the Allpoint Network.
