How to open a bank account

We do not advise that you set up a bank account over the internet but that you meet with someone in person.  There will be representatives from various banks on campus during the beginning of the fall semester and other times throughout the school year.  Look for their display outside the cafeteria or in the upper commons.

When setting up your account bring the following items: 

  • Judson ID
  • State Drivers license or ID
  • Visa
  • Passport
  • I-20
  • I-94
  • Any money you would like to deposit into your account.  

There are various banks in Elgin that you can choose from.  

  • Amcore Bank
  • Bank of America 
  • Chase
  • National City Bank
  • Union National Bank

These banks also have websites where you can find further information on each of the accounts these banks offer.
