Community college adding US Bank

Everett Community College in Washington will rollout a new ID in the fall that will include a debit card from US Bank, according to The Clipper.

Students will have the option to use the debit function and have their financial aid check deposited directly to the card’s account. The school decided to go with the new cards after viewing the success a similar program at nearby Bellevue College.

The new ID cards will enable students to get their financial aid deposited into their debit cards within two to five days, compared to those who opt to receive a paper check that will take longer.

According to an Everett administrator, the distribution of checks to those students opting out of electronic transfer is also part of the service provided by US Bank. It alleviates the work and responsibility for campus staff.

Everett is hoping to start issuing the new cards this summer and enable the financial aid dispersal system in the fall.
