My Student Advantage Account

Being a student is a very important stage of life but it can also be a time when every dollar counts. Because we value your time as a student as much as you do, we've created an account to help!

My Student Advantage Account
We know that when you're a student, finances can be tight. That's why we created a
student account designed to give you an advantage.

  • You can keep track of your account information, check your account balance, and even pay bills using Mobile Web or our Go Mobile app on your smartphone.
  • Paying your rent or even your part of the pizza bill is simple with Interac e-Transfer®. It's easy and FREE!

Do you qualify for a Student Advantage Chequing Account?

  • Are you between 12 and 18 years old?
  • Are you a 19-25 year old full or part-time post secondary student?

You qualify! When you turn 19, you'll get a letter from us. We'll tell you what you need to do to keep your Student Advantage account. To avoid service fees, just make sure you send us your confirmation of enrollment every year that you're attending a post-secondary institution.

You Can Pay Your Tuition in Internet Banking!

You can add your university or college as a payee to pay your tuition... just like when you pay your other bills! Once inside Internet Banking, simply click on 'Payments' on the left-hand menu and then choose 'Add a new Bill Payee' and search for your college or university.

To open a Student Advantage Chequing Account, contact one of our branches.
