•Mobile Banking: Many banks now have additional features for mobile banking like mobile deposit and bill pay.

•Fees: Banks often have student accounts options to help reduce additional fees associated with having an account. Opening a savings account or using your debit card multiple times a month can allows you to have a free account. Overdraft protection can help prevent the overdraft fee.

•Credit: Banks have student credit cards to help improving credit score.

•Loans: Ask your bank about loan options for any private student loans or to refinance your car. Low interest rate help save in the long run.

•ATMs: Check for close ATM locations and options when choosing a bank. Make sure the ATMs offer everything you need when pressed for time.
