Online Credit Responsibility Class
The following online class, provided by Education Cents, is a fun, yet educational way to learn about using credit responsibly. Education Cents was created by CollegeInvest, a not-for-profit division of the Colorado Department of Higher Education. In order to receive credit for completing the online course as part of your parental requirement to receive your Student Credit Card, you must register for the program via Education Cents. Follow this link to the instructions and link to Education Cents.
Once you complete the online credit course successfully and to ensure you receive credit for taking the online course, please notify the credit union that you have done so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
