Our goal is to help students graduate with a solid financial foundation and keep them out of debt.
Our experience in dealing with students has given us the opportunity to develop NO COST programs to help them in budgeting expenses, balancing their accounts, establishing credit and avoiding debt.
Transferring money into the student account is easy with over 4,500 Credit Union Service Centers nationwide, or parents can elect to use many other Internet options to transfer money immediately to student accounts. Monitoring the accounts in real time is available to parents and students with FREE account access via ACUiBranch® or ACUmBranchSM with your smartphone.
Having a student account at Alabama Credit Union saves the student money with a FREE checking account that includes NO minimum balance, NO monthly service fee and a FREE VISA ATM/Debit card. Our on-campus credit union office and our multiple on-campus ATMs make it convenient for students to access their accounts. There's a reason why we're the #1 choice of students and parents -- we help teach students to make healthy financial choices!
