Caltech Students

Undergraduates and graduates at Caltech can join Caltech Employees Federal Credit Union (CEFCU), the exclusive financial institution serving the Caltech community.

Why should I become a member?

We're not your run-of-the-mill, try-to-do-everything financial institution. We choose to deliver only those products and services that we can do BEST.

Once you join, membership can last a lifetime and beyond — a solid financial advantage you can take with you when you graduate. Plus, through you, your family is eligible to join too! So they can also share in this financial benefit.

Discover the difference of personal service, convenient access, and unsurpassed safety that makes CEFCU the trusted choice of our members.
