We Put You First

Inspired by our mission to support education — and because we were founded at The University of Texas at Austin — the education community is extra special to us. We are proud to give back to the UT faculty, staff, and student communities through sponsorships including UT’s Texas One Stop and Texas Athletics, professor lending programs, scholarships, internships, and more.

Checking, the Credit Union Way

Open a Free Checking account and bank easy with no monthly fees or minimum balance requirements, or find freedom in any of our convenient checking account options. Members also have access to free instant-issue contactless debit cards at any of our locations.

Easy Transfers and Access to Your Cash

Fuel your financial success by easily transferring funds from any account or financial institution 24/7. Or, quickly deposit a check, make a transfer, or pay a bill using the UFCU Mobile Banking app. You’re able to get cash fast, and that’s money in the bank.

Unmatched Convenience

Complete transactions 24/7 with Online Banking, or visit one of our 4 UT campus locations or 25+ campus-area ATMs in-person. Off-campus, we have more than 500+ ATMs throughout Austin and 55,000+ fee-free ATMs via AllPoint, available nationwide. Manage your account at thousands of national branches in the Shared Branch Network.

Banking, the UFCU Way

What’s a Credit Union?

Unlike a bank, Members own UFCU, not corporate stakeholders. A credit union is more than just a financial institution — it’s a partnership. Every day we aspire to move relationships from transactional to transformational, to change lives and strengthen communities.

Personal Service

Our person-to-person relationship with each Member means you can ask questions, partner with, and receive personal financial services tailored to meet your needs. That means our Members benefit from services focused on their financial success today and in the future.

Financial Education

At UFCU, we’ve created ways for all to learn, grow, and reach their goals. Our PlanU program helps our Members learn to navigate day-to-day finances and manage their money through financial workshops and a wealth of online resources.

Resources for You

UFCU is your financial partner for life. We are here to help you reach all your life goals — maximizing your budget, planning for a major purchase, and helping you realize your own unique financial vision for your future.

Be on the lookout for financial seminars and education offered throughout the year.
