Hey Parents, We Can Help with College!

June 09, 2021 | White Rose Credit Union | College, Resources for Parents, Resources for Students

Sending your kids off to college can be a daunting task. There’s finding a location, finding a major they like, worrying about the SATs and all the excitement of graduation. Then comes the cost.

We want you to know about all of the resources available to you at White Rose Credit Union to help you through the process of helping your student off to college.

Free College Planning Tools

We offer a college planning tool, Edmit, that allows parents and students to compare college costs with financial aid projections and budget calculations based on your family’s unique financial situation. The Edmit portal also gives you access to a range of micro-courses and information to walk you through FASFA and the financial aid process that many can find overwhelming. Edmit is usually $99 but is free to our members and their families. Did you know that the average family that uses Edmit saves over $5,000 in college costs? Learn more about Edmit at White Rose Credit Union.

Local Private Student Loans

Parents and students are encouraged to take advantage of our low-rate student lending solution to cover the remaining costs that financial aid may not cover. With Student Choice, you can apply online with no application fees, no prepayment fees, and you have the option to only borrow once.

Don’t get stuck with a high-interest loan from a big bank or commercial student lender. Your credit union is here to help you save the most through this important journey! Learn more about our convenient student loans.

We Go Where They Go

Our Online Banking tools make it easy for you or your student to take us on the go. Our Mobile App allows users to deposit checks with their smartphone’s camera using Remote Deposit. The app also allows for transfers to other WRCU accounts, and payments on credit cards and other loans.

While away at college, keeping your finances safe is also a priority. Students and parents can use the CardValet app to manage their cards with customizable limits on transaction sizes, merchant types, and geographical locations.

All of our credit and debit cards have the ability to make contactless payments and be added to most smartphones’ Digital Wallets, making purchases easy and hassle-free.

Financial Education

Credit unions are focused on people helping people. We’re dedicated to improving the lives of our members and that includes your student!

We partner with Zogo, to bring a financial education app to members that provides bite-sized educational modules and rewards users with points. Users can then exchange those points for gift cards to popular brands like Adidas, Amazon, Sephora, Target, Starbucks, and more! Learn more about Zogo.

Our blog and website also offer free educational material to help build the financial foundations for your student’s future. We are always here to help, so don’t be afraid to give us a call or shoot us a message. Sit down with one of our Senior Member Service Representatives to see what we can do for your family.
