Congratulations! You’re off to Culver, one of the finest college preparatory schools in the country! It means more independence, an opportunity to be on your own and take care of yourself. It means more responsibility, too. 1st Source Bank understands how hectic this time is as you plan for your transition. We can help you manage your financial affairs with a great lineup of student services. Culver does not handle student spending accounts and has chosen 1st Source Bank as the preferred bank for student accounts.
Convenience & Personal
1st Source is the only bank with an ATM cash machine on the Culver campus (located in the Book Store). We also have many Banking Centers and ATMs nearby in Plymouth, Argos, Knox, Winamac, and Rochester, as well as all over northern Indiana and southwest Michigan. So we are everywhere you need us. Lastly, you will have access to our highly-rated Online Banking and Mobile Banking Apps to manage your money.
Culver Student Package
As a Culver student, you have a great package of services available to you.
FREE Checking Account - You are eligible for a FREE checking account with no minimum balance requirements. You may order checks for the account, but they are not part of the initial student package.
FREE Online / Mobile Banking* - Our Online Banking, Mobile Banking Apps, Text Banking, and Voice Banking allows you to access your account information at anytime from anywhere. You can also transfer funds between 1st Source accounts for better financial tracking and management, right from your own computer! You must set up online/mobile banking to receive e-statements and balance alerts via text message.
FREE Resource Plus® Debit Card - You can make deposits and withdrawals from the Culver ATM, make withdrawals from any other ATM** displaying the MasterCard® or Accel logo or use your debit card to make purchases where the MasterCard® or Accel is accepted. The maximum ATM withdrawal per day is $300 and the maximum purchases per day are $1000, but you can select lower amounts if you wish. We also offer our free CardValet® App to provide students or parents enhanced security and customized settings on your debit card. If a debit card is not right for you, you can select the Resource® ATM Card, which can be used for ATM withdrawals only.
ATM On-Campus - We have an ATM located outside the student bookstore for convenient banking.
Zelle® – a fast, safe and easy way to send money directly between almost any bank accounts in the U.S., typically within minutes1.
Getting started is easy
We have put everything you need to open your account into one easy packet. Simply download the forms, follow our New Account Checklist, and then make sure to return all required documents along with your initial deposit of $50.00 U.S. If all documents are complete and we receive your documents no later than August 1st, we will have your new checking account waiting when you arrive on campus. At that time we will be there to give you your new account materials. It can take up to 14 days to process your new application (once on campus), so please plan accordingly. Meanwhile, if you have any questions you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (574) 935-1523 or (800) 513-2360.
We look forward to seeing you!
