With this partnership, the Credit Union will open a branch on campus within the GCU's Lope Shop in the fall of 2019.

The Canyon State Credit Union campus branch will provide the convenience of onsite, in-person account services, combined with the flexibility of remote access through online banking, mobile banking and ATMs. "Grand Canyon University has selected Canyon State Credit Union as our first university-based branch and we look forward to the financial and professional development this partnership will provide to our students, faculty and staff," said Grand Canyon University President Brian Mueller. This will be a full-service branch offering the same products and services that are available at any Canyon State Credit Union branch.
