Financial Literacy

We recognize that for many students this may be their first experience with banking and one that may define money management habits for years to come. With this in mind, we’re dedicated to helping students learn fiscal responsibility they can use well beyond the college years.

Higher One provides financial literacy to students in multiple ways, including:
  • Campaigns designed to educate students about responsible account usage and overall money management.
  • Online demonstration videos that build knowledge and educate on topics such as refund choices, card benefits and account services.
  • Money 101, a student-focused email newsletter and information repository for financial education, responsible spending and smart saving.

Zero Liability!

Thanks to the MasterCard Zero Liability Protection policy, there are never worries about a lost or stolen card. Zero Liability means that your student won’t be held responsible in the event of unauthorized use. Simply notify Higher One immediately if the card is lost, or suspicious activity is suspected.

Easily send money to your student

One of the reasons the OneAccount is so flexible is the ability for you to send money to your student electronically—where it will be directly deposited into their OneAccount. Sending money is easy and requires no special trip to your bank. Visit the “Family and Friends” section at now to begin.
