UCF Student Checking Account is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 116.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall no problems A few months ago I opened a student account so that I could deposit cash and bank more conveniently. The only issue that I have was that the teller helping me seemed not to know what to do. I had to ask her for my bank account numbers and debit card, and she didn't tell me that I had to verify my student account with my UCF ID, so I had to go back in again. Also, using my debit card has been very problematic. Almost any online transactions will not go through because it comes up as fraudulent. I don;t know if that is a common thing for new accounts but I don't like the feeling that at any moment my card could be declined if I try to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Option I became a member at Fairwinds so that I would have easy access to an ATM on campus each day and I couldn't be more pleased. Setting up the account was easy and with practically no fees I know I will be keeping this account for awhile. Also, the card I got is a very nice design and it was also FREE, which was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super convenient! After opening a student checking account with Fairwinds at UCF, it's so much easier for me to purchase things that I need while on campus as well as make deposits to my savings without waiting in line! Saves a lot of time and I won't have to worry about being low on cash during the week!
