Financial Resources with FECU
Scholarships are not the only way to help with your financial plan. FECU offers many other options to help with your financial future.
Checking accounts & Debit Cards
Opening a checking account is the first step of financial independence. We are here to help you get started with a checking account and debit card. We also offer mobile banking and online banking to help manage your accounts while you are away at college. Get started!
Being in debt can be a scary thing for a college student. However, with our student loans, you can focus on learning and not on the financial burden of college expenses. Apply for a loan.
Unexpected expenses may come up for students during college. Having a credit card could be a good back up plan. With a FECU VISA Credit Card, there are no annual fees, easy balance transfers, low monthly payments, and up to 1% cash back on purchases. Learn more about Credit Cards .
Financial Education Resources
You can’t start financial education too early. FECU offers online Kids Resources to help your child prepare for their financial independence.
