Foster City, CA – July 30, 2019 – According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are more than 18 million students enrolled in college. Chances are, many are looking to open a checking account, but where do they start? The financial comparison site,, just announced the best student checking accounts at the top U.S. Banks for 2019.

  • U.S. Bank Student Checking - this account has no monthly fees for students. There are no out-of-network ATM fees charged for the first four non-U.S. Bank ATM transactions (ATM operator fees may apply).
  • Chase College Student Checking - as one of the largest banks in the U.S., this means access to a national network of branches and ATMs and there's no monthly fee for students enrolled in college.
  • Schwab Bank Investor Checking - this may be perfect for students studying abroad. Although you must have a Schwab brokerage account to open one, it does not charge a monthly fee or have a minimum deposit. Plus students receive unlimited ATM fee refunds in the U.S. and abroad.

Generally, online banks don't offer checking accounts specifically for college students because there are no monthly fees. Here are our top online picks:

  • Radius Hybrid Checking - there isn’t a monthly fee and all ATM fees are refunded, including those charged by foreign ATMs.
  • Axos Bank Rewards Checking - there is not a monthly fee and U.S. ATM fees are reimbursed; plus the higher the balance, the higher the interest rate which is a great incentive to start saving.
