We are here to power your education

Whether at a trade school, college or university, continuing your education may be important to you. Let us help you with your options, from setting up a savings strategy to applying for an RCU student line of credit.

​​​​What type of help do you need?

Developing a savings program

Post-secondary education, whether at a trade school, college or university is expensive. RCU can help by showing you the benefits of starting a savings program early. 

​RCU student line of credit

You are starting school, but you need a little extra money to get you through. RCU offers excellent rates on the financing that suits your needs best. 

​Purchasing a rental property 

Buying a property may be the cheapest way to live while you attend a post-secondary institution. With RCU's help, roommates could be paying your mortgage while you accumulate the equity. Now that's smart.

​Benefits for students

At RCU, we're here to help you find the financial solutions you need while attending school. Fewer service charges for students can ease the stress of financial worries and let you concentrate on your next exam. Anyone under 25 years of age has access to a no POS fee account.

​Enjoy the advantages of an RCU Student Line of Credit
