The TCF U Card Checking Account is one of the accounts that you can access with your U Card. It offers the convenience of two campus branch locations and the most on-campus ATMs!
TCF Bank is the official U Card Bank and the only bank that can connect your U Card to a checking account. TCF Bank annually contributes scholarship dollars to the University of Minnesota and supports campus-wide initiatives. These are just a few of the reasons why TCF Bank has been the Official U Card bank since 1995!
As a current or incoming student, staff or faculty member you can open a TCF U Card Checking account at the U Card Office when you get your U Card or at any convenient TCF Bank location. As an existing TCF customer, connecting your account to use your U Card as an ATM card is quick and easy and can also be done at the U Card Office.

How can I use my U Card as an ATM card?
The 17-digit U Card number on your U Card is used to uniquely identify you as a member of the University of Minnesota community. This number is also referenced by TCF Bank when a cardholder has a TCF U Card Checking account and their U Card is used at an ATM. Once you've opened a TCF U Card Checking Account you can use your U Card as an ATM card, like you would a check or debit card. TCF U Card Checking accounts can be opened at the U Card Office or at any TCF Bank branch.
