Florida State University announced today a five-year banking partnership with Truist, part of Truist Financial Corporation.
This partnership aligns with the Truist purpose to inspire and build better lives and communities for students, faculty and staff at Florida State University. Truist will provide financial wellness programs and on campus banking to more than 45,000 students, as well as faculty and staff at FSU’s main campus in Tallahassee. The partnership runs through June 30, 2026, and extends the university’s 20-year relationship with SunTrust Bank, which merged with BB&T to form Truist.
“We are pleased to partner with Truist and know this relationship will benefit the entire campus community, especially our students,” said Kyle Clark, vice president for Finance and Administration. “Financial literacy plays an important part in the success of a student’s journey through college and life after graduation.”
Partnership highlights include:
- Financial wellness education through tools, resources, calculators and podcasts to help students, faculty and staff increase financial confidence as they navigate through their financial lives
- A full-service, on-campus Truist branch along with six on campus Truist ATMs
- New Truist Student Banking account with no monthly maintenance fee designed with the collegiate journey in mind
- Innovative mobile and online banking platforms to provide the FSU community a seamless omni-channel experience with the branch team that combines touch and technology
Truist is already investing in the success of FSU students. Last month, the Florida State University Foundation received a $100,000 grant from Truist through its Truist Charitable Fund, a donor-advised fund at The Winston-Salem Foundation, to expand programming and improve retention and graduation rates for first-generation students and those disadvantaged by economic circumstances. The grant will be used to aid first-generation students, students with economic hardship and students with dependents to enhance their recruitment, retention, graduation and career success.
“We’re proud of our long-standing partnership with FSU and remain committed to helping students with their financial wellness,” said Brant Standridge, chief retail community banking officer at Truist. “At Truist our purpose is to inspire and build better lives and communities, which is why we’re equipping FSU students with financial knowledge and the solutions to benefit them along their financial journey in their college years and in the future.”
