Student VISA Credit Card

The Student VISA Credit Card is a secured credit card designed to help you build good credit and manage your account responsibly. A secured credit card requires funds that you provide as a security deposit. These funds earn interest but are not available for withdrawal.


  • $250 minimum credit limit
  • $3,000 maximum credit limit
  • No credit history needed
  • No income requirement
  • Must be age 18 or over

The Student VISA Credit Card has all the same features as our traditional VISA Card. 

It's not just for students. While this card is an excellent fit for students, it is designed for anyone looking to build credit.  

Fraud Protection

To protect your account, we monitor your credit card transactions for potentially fraudulent activity which may include a sudden change in locale, a sudden string of costly purchases, or any pattern associated with new fraud trends around the world.

If we suspect fraudulent credit card use, we'll be calling you to validate the legitimacy of your transactions. Your participation in responding to our call is critical to prevent potential risk and avoid restrictions we may place on the use of your card. 

  • Our automated call will ask you to verify recent transaction activity on your card.
  • You'll be able to respond via your touchtone keypad.
  • You'll also be provided a toll-free number to call should you have additional questions.
  • We will NEVER ask you for your full social security number, account number, PIN or a one-time passcode.  If someone asks you for this information, do not give it out.  Hang up and call 860-522-5388.
  • Respond NOT FRAUD only when you did not make the transaction. Never use that response because someone has instructed you to do so.

To ensure we can continue to reach you whenever potential fraud is detected, please keep us informed of your correct phone number and address at all times.  Changes in contact information can be made in person or in writing

Please be diligent in monitoring transaction activity on your account and contact us immediately at 844-592-6414 if you identify any fraudulent transactions.
