SRCU (Student-Run Credit Union)

Real-world financial experience for students

Ask about our Student-Run Credit Union program

Students in Fairfax, Fauquier, Frederick (VA), Loudoun, Prince William and Stafford Counties gain hands-on experience using or operating a fully functioning Apple FCU branch inside their school building.

Students are ‘hired’ as employees and perform many duties, like accepting membership applications and processing deposits. The goal is for students to enhance their financial literacy, gain practical work experience and improve their money management skills.

Who can do business at a school branch?

Only students, faculty and staff that work at the school can conduct business at the SRCU during the day. The branches are open during the school lunch periods and sometimes before and/or after school.
