It is not common in the U.S. to carry large amounts of cash. Most people will use a debit card, credit card or check to pay for items. A debit card works as a credit card, except it withdraws funds directly from your checking or savings account.
Setting up a checking or savings account is easily done. Two forms of identification are required to open the account, such as your passport and student I.D. card (which will be issued to you once you arrive on campus).
Several Manhattan banks have more than one branch. The listing below includes the branch locations closest to campus. You are not required to use any of these banks. These are just helpful suggestions. If you are interested in opening accounts at any of these banks, please contact the bank directly for further information.
