Center for International Studies

Banking

There are a many banking businesses in Macomb but the Center for International Studies mostly takes international students to open an account at Citizens Bank during orientation because they do not require a Social Security number to open a bank account. Even though you may already have a bank account with Bank or America, Citi Bank, etc. there is not a national branch available in Macomb.

For students without a bank account, the University has negotiated arrangements with three local banks to offer "no cost" options, which waive the initial minimum balance requirement.
