It’s easy to open a checking account for your child who is going to college. Simply visit a financial center or call to speak to a customer service representative. You can reach a Bank of America representative at 800.432.1000 between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., local time.
If your child has not yet left for college, please use your home address as the mailing address for the account. If your child has already left for college, consider applying for a joint account with a parent as the primary account holder. Then use your home address as the mailing address for the account, so we’ll be able to verify your address faster and send all account opening materials to your home address.
