Easy process. Live in California so opened share savings with online application that I had to mail. Very quickly acct was set up. Then it was easy to deposit money through shared branch network and fax applications to open cds requesting transfer of the funds from the share savings. I deposited it in California. Five minutes later Melrose could transfer it to the new cd. This was a lot faster than ACH. And I could verify it on line. Really kind people at the call center. Don't open a cd you will want to close early because of penalties.
I have almost nothing negative to say about UW Credit Union. They are very convenient for any individual on campus, because they have locations seemingly everywhere and tons of no-fee ATMs for easy access to cash when you're about town. They're probably the best option for any student who needs an account while in college anywhere in Madison. That being said, some of the people at the UW Credit Union branches aren't the best. Because of the nature of being in a college town, I think they have a relatively high rate of turnover in their customer service staffers. I always felt like the person I was dealing with was very new, every single time I went to a credit union location. In conclusion, UW Credit Union is a great option for anyone going to UW-Madison. But beware that they are probably not going to be as professional as a bank or a credit union that is not so intertwined with the university culture.
