Great for Students, Too

The DCU Visa Platinum is the perfect card for college students. Online access is easy when you're away from home through Online Banking and it is safer than cash.

If your own financial situation doesn't allow you to qualify for a card on your own (based on your credit history, income, and expenses), you'll need to have an adult co-borrower who does qualify – most often a parent. That offers four advantages:

  1. It allows you to begin building your own credit history
  2. It may qualify you for a higher credit limit
  3. It can result in a lower interest rate since your rate will be determined by the best personal credit history among your co-borrowers
  4. Your co-borrowers can access the account through Online Banking and can easily help make payments by online transfer from their own DCU accounts
