Why We Are Best for Students

We're Not-For-Profit


Banks are in business to make a profit. They know that most students are new to managing their finances. Some banks see an opportunity to profit by charging high fees when students make banking mistakes, apply for credit cards for the first time, or need to use services frequently.

Elevations Credit Union is a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative. If our members are successful, then we will be successful. The Credit Union does charge fees. But in most cases, the fees are lower than bank fees, and we make every effort to help you avoid banking mistakes.
