International Students and Scholars

Welcome!

Starting school or work in a new country can be daunting. As part of Cambridge Trust's on-going commitment to Bentley, Harvard and MIT international students and scholars, we would like to ease your transition by helping you establish your local bank account before you arrive on campus.

All of our accounts feature personal attention from qualified bankers dedicated to answering your questions and addressing your needs. Our simple three step account opening program makes establishing a relationship a smooth process that saves you time and money, while avoiding the risks and inconvenience of carrying large sums of cash or traveler's checks.

Prior to arrival:

Step 2:

Cambridge Trust will:

  • Establish a checking account with a debit card in your name and assign an account number
  • Order you a free set of checks
  • Provide you with our wire transfer instructions, which will enable you to transfer money from your bank to Cambridge Trust Company before you leave home. We will waive the initial fee for the incoming international wire.

Step 3:

Upon arrival on campus:

  • Come into the Bank and present your passport, sign the necessary documents and pick up your checkbook and debit card
  • Access to your account will be granted upon your arrival in the Cambridge area.
