Our VISA credit cards all have zero annual fees and rates that you won't find at any other financial institution. All of our VISA cards (except for the secured card) have a wide variety of benefits including Reward Points. This includes travel up to $500,000 and exceptional travel and emergency services.

FIXED APR: At Academic, what you see is what you get. Unlike other companies with variable interest rates, our VISA Credit Cards all have fixed interest rates. You'll get the card that you qualify for, and the APR will not change.

The Academic FCU VISA Secured Card is a credit card that you have to secure the funds against. (EX: If you desire a $1,000.00 secured card, you will need the $1,000.00 in your Academic FCU account to secure it against.) The secured amount will be on hold for the life of the card. The money will not be released unless you no longer wish to have the Secured Card.

The Secured Card is a great way to build credit for those without previous credit history or previously bad credit. There is a minimum limit of $500.00 and a fixed interest rate of 10.9%. There are no annual fees, however, the Secure Card does not offer the same benefits and perks of our other cards.
