Students at UC Davis and California State University, Sacramento now have the ability to link their campus ID cards to US Bank and Wells Fargo, respectively, according to the Sacramento Bee.
UC Davis students will be able to use their student ID card to perform ATM debit transactions if they sign up for a US Bank account, and the same goes for CSUS students who sign with Wells Fargo.
It’s a win-win for both parties. College officials say they are able to preserve campus programs and, in turn, banks get to market their products and services directly to college students. The banks partnering with UC Davis and Sacramento State aren’t allowed to market credit cards or student loans.
The annual money CSUS gets from Wells Fargo goes to support the office that makes the ID cards, said campus spokesman John Kepley. UC Davis will use the money it gets from US Bank to support student services, including the cross-cultural center and the advising center, said Brett Burns of campus student affairs.
