Teen and Student Bank Accounts


Whether you’re in high school or heading off to college, having access to your money should be easy. Opening a free online checking account with us is one way to make that happen. All it takes is ten bucks to get started. We’ll even reward you with a gift card.*

We've got spirit!

We’ve also got two checking accounts that are great fits for students. Depending on your age, you can open a First Checking account for a Smart Checking account. Both come with a debit card that earns Avidia rewards points, and both are compatible with People Pay.** If Mom or Dad have the Avidia app, People Pay enables them to send you money instantly. Plus, neither account has monthly fees or ATM fees.

*The minimum balance required to obtain the bonus e-gift card is $10. We’ll email it to you within a week of you opening your account.
**Standard text and data rates may apply.
^Customers who turn 24 are no longer eligible for Avidia@School benefits but will still retain their Smart Checking account.
