Make your Mustang Card your Only Card on and off Campus!

You have enough to worry about in college without having to stress out about your finances.  U.S. Bank makes it simple.  Open a U.S. Bank checking account with great student benefits and turn your Mustang Card into your Campus ID and ATM/Debit Card -- all in one.  We've made it each for you to manage your money with the best checking account for students in the country.

One Less Load to Carry

If you choose to have a checking account at U.S. Bank and link it to your Mustang Card, you will be able to use your Mustang Card to access over 1.5 million Interlink point-of-sale locations nationwide.  Whether you're at the gas pump or the grocery store, simply swipe your Mustang Card through the reader, select "debit," and enter your ATM PIN code.  After you approve the amount to be paid, the total will be debited from your checking account.  Check with your favorite local retailers to find out if they are a part of the Interlink network.

SMSU - U.S. Bank Partnership

U.S. Bank has been a strong supporter of SMSU for many years and in many ways.  From staff helping out as Mustang Movers and serving up bbq lunch on Freshman move-in day, to financial donations to the SMSU athletics program, U.S. Bank has shown their Stanger Spirit!  U.S. Bank expanded their support of SMSU on July 15, 2010 by entering into an agreement to provide our students with a multifunctional identification and service card now known as the Mustang Card.  As part of that commitment, U.S. Bank provides additional services including Registration Day assistance, co-sponsoring of various student events, financial education presentations, a monthly banker on campus to answer any banking related question students might have, and maintains an ATM on campus.  Put into numbers, U.S. Bank contractual support of the Mustang Card Program for the 2016-2017 fiscal year was:

$  4,000  Royalty Payment to SMSU
$  1,500  Non-monetary Marketing Commitment to SMSU 
$  1,500  Non-monetary Website Link Development Commitment to SMSU
$10,000  Non-monetary Staffing & Consultation Commitment to SMSU

During the 2016-2017 SMSU Fiscal Year, 209 SMSU students had active U.S. Bank accounts linked to their Mustang Cards.  Of those 209 students, 50% incurred $8 or less in bank fees during that 12-month period, while the average for that year was $31.  These mean and median costs were derived from all fees paid by SMSU student account holders, including fees for overdrawn accounts, non-U.S. Bank ATM use beyond the monthly free use allotment, and paper statement fees for those who chose that option over electronic statements.
