We are headed into the final months of 2022 and I know it’s tough to believe! The year has featured many accomplishments, and the last few months have been no exception. UCU announced our new partnership with University of California San Diego, celebrated the grand opening of the UC Davis Banking Hub, and we continue to be fully committed to serving our member-owners during these uncertain times.


New Partnership with the University of California San Diego


Our new partnership with UC San Diego will position UCU as the official credit union and financial services provider for the campus. The partnership allows UCU to offer support via one-on-one consultations on campus, financial education and workshops, sponsorship of athletic and alumni events, and support of the entire UC San Diego community.


In addition, members will have expanded account access at six new on-campus ATM locations and a new banking hub. And as with all our university partners, they’ll get to show their school spirit with co-branded UC San Diego credit cards and UC San Diego Athletics debit cards. We are excited to expand our relationship with UC San Diego and give Tritons the financial advantage they deserve!


UC Davis Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies


Last year, UCU and UC Davis finalized a new partnership that included adding a UCU banking hub on campus. We recently celebrated the opening of the new banking hub located in Memorial Union with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening celebration. Now Aggies that prefer to have in-person experiences can in our newest location.


Helping Our Members Weather Uncertain Times


We see firsthand how the uncertain economy has impacted our members this year. Rising interest rates, inflation, and high fuel costs have taken a toll on all our budgets. As a reminder, UCU is here to support your financial goals and continues to ease the financial burden currently felt by offering high yielding certificates and our Best Rates in the Nation Guarantee* on loans. As always, UCU remains committed to delivering unbiased, conflict-free financial advice from our certified experts.


In the upcoming months, you will see other ways UCU is dedicated to making a difference in our member-owners’ lives. We have just announced that credit card transactions now count toward the 25 monthly transaction threshold to make it easier to earn up to 5.00% APY1 on your University Checking Account, we have opened our newly reimagined Westwood Advisory Center, and will be enhancing several of our delivery channels. I look forward to sharing details of each of the initiatives in the next newsletter.


Thank you for your membership.
