Terms and conditions.

*Qualification for Student Choice ® Checking requires a parent or guardian as a Joint Owner on the account, who must agree to be legally responsible for all account activity. If approved, the Student's name will appear on her/his own VISA Debit Card. For more information please call 877.ASK.CCCU (877.275.2228).

**Early Direct Deposit: Early fund access depends upon your employer sending us a notification of the paycheck ahead of the scheduled deposit date. For this reason we cannot guarantee early deposits in all cases.
