Student Checking Account

No monthly service charge, mobile and online access, and an insufficient fund rebate are just few reasons why Webster’s student checking account is a great option.


Mobile and Online Banking  

Who has time to hit the bank? Webster checking accounts let you check balances, transfer funds, pay bills, get balance alerts via text or email and more -- online or with our mobile app. Our app even lets you deposit checks with your smartphone or tablet.


Refer a Friend and Earn $50

With a Webster checking account, you can earn $50 by referring your friends. If a friend or business opens and uses a new checking account, you’ll both earn $50! You can even share your referral link on your social networks to get your friends to sign up from Facebook or Twitter.
