International Students

Information for International Students

Being an international student will be one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of your life. We understand how busy you’ll be during your first few weeks on campus. That’s why we provide an easy way to open your 1st Source e-student checking account before you leave home.

Safer than carrying cash
If you open your e-student checking account now, you can wire funds in advance and they’ll be here when you arrive. When you get to campus, stop by a 1st Source banking center to complete the process and begin accessing your money.

Getting started is easy
We have put everything you need to open your account into one easy packet. Simply download the forms, provide some basic information, and email the packet back to us. (NOTE: Two forms will require your signature.)

An e-student account is convenient
Account information is as close as your computer or smartphone. You’ll also receive:
  • No-Fee Checking - With electronic statements and online Bill Pay.
  • Online, text or mobile banking* - You can check your balance, transfer funds between 1st Source accounts, pay bills, and even deposit checks using the camera on your smartphone. All for free!
  • Debit Card - Make withdrawals from any ATM** or use your card anywhere MasterCard® is accepted. The maximum ATM withdrawal per day is $500.

We look forward to seeing you!
