Send money to students at the speed of need.
You don’t have to be there with them, to be there for them. PayPal is a fast way to send money, making sure your student is never without the essentials.

Not just fast. Safe.
Send money to students for food, books or other essentials without giving out your full credit card or bank account numbers.

Pay the way you want.
Linking multiple accounts—like your bank account, credit cards or debit card—makes it simple to choose how you want to send money.

Make home feel a little closer.
Life’s not always about the essentials. Send a gift of encouragement or some pizza money to fuel those late-night study sessions.
