What is a college green card?

The college account with Herring Bank is an optional account that if chosen allows your Student ID Card to also function as a debit card that accesses an FDIC-insured College Green Checking Account located at Herring Bank.

You can use this card to receive and access funds you choose to deposit into your checking account.

My college makes direct deposits into my account for the money they owe me. All my refunds are directly deposited – no more waiting on a check in the mail!

Why should I get one and what can I do with it?

Simply put, to make your life easier. Kind of like a “one card to rule them all” – ie. carry less cards and do more with the few you do carry.
