Finding a Bank

There are many banks in the area to choose from. Check out this Google Map to see banks in La Mirada, or see the list below for banks extending beyond the La Mirada area. We recommend Chase and Wells Fargo; they have experience dealing with international students.

To open up an account at most local banks, you will need at least two of the following documents. Once you have picked out a bank, before visiting you should contact them first by phone to see what they require.

  • Driver’s license or state ID
  • Student ID
  • Passport

Campus ATM
