NACCU New Member Highlight:
University Credit Union

In this latest installment of our New Member Highlight, we catch up with Megan Eisenhard with new NACCU member University Credit Union.

Talk about the history of your company.

University Credit Union was founded in 1951 on UCLA’s campus by employees looking for an alternative to traditional banking. Since our humble beginnings, we have experienced exponential growth and have expanded throughout the West Coast and beyond. Although we have experienced growth and changes over the decades, we have remained true to our roots – to give everyone in the university community a financial advantage. We were born out of the university system and continue exclusively serve the university community. We understand the university community better than any other financial institution. We have over 70 years of experience exclusively serving university communities. We understand the importance of customizing our approach, marketing, philanthropic efforts and products to best fit the uniqueness of each university. 

What does your company do?

University Credit union is a co-operative financial institution. Since we are a credit union, not a bank, we are owned by our members, not shareholders. Therefore, our member-owners’ best interests are at the heart of everything we do. We offer our members the Lowest Loan Rates in the Nation Guarantee. We guarantee that our member-owners receive the lowest loan rates in the nation by remaining in the top 5% lowest rates according to a monthly survey of financial institutions conducted by Standard and Poor’s. Our certified financial coaches offer unbiased, conflict-free advice. We do not offer individual incentives to ensure we serve our members’ best interest. 

What products and services do you provide specifically to campus card operations?

        Since we are uniquely designed to serve universities, we are able to collaborate and customize products and services to meet the needs of individual universities. 

        Is there a new product of service you want to tell us about?

        We are working with partner universities to offer the best and most relevant products and services to their students, employees and alumni. We believe these products and services will help each group of university stakeholders be financially successful at every stage of their lives.
