  • As a new USC student, we recommend you open both a student checking and savings account. A savings account is required to become a member of USC Credit Union, and is an account used for money you’d like to save for the future. Any money you don’t plan on using for your day to day spending should be kept in this account. We recommend a student checking account for every day spending. With this account, you’ll receive a debit card, which you can use to withdraw money from ATM’s and make purchases at stores or online.
