The Chase Freedom Student card, designed to support financial health for young adults, is now available for online applications.
The Chase Freedom® Student, which launched in Chase branches last year, is now available for online applications. The card is designed for students to start earning rewards while improving their credit history and financial health. Students over 18 who are approved for the card will enjoy the following benefits:
1% cash back on every purchase
Cardholders will earn 1% cash back on every purchase they make, with no limit to how much they can earn. Once you’ve earned rewards, you can redeem them for cash back, travel, Apple purchases and much more.
$50 sign-up bonus
New cardholders are eligible to earn a $50 sign-up bonus after making their first purchase on the card within the first three months.
Good standing bonus
On top of a nice sign-up bonus, the Freedom Student card offers a $20 good standing reward on your account anniversary every year for the first five years – as long as your account is still open and in good standing.
Opportunities for credit limit increase
To help students improve their credit, the Freedom Student card automatically reviews accounts for a credit limit increase after five on-time payments in the first 10 months of account opening.
No annual fee
The Chase Freedom Student card will not charge an annual fee, so students can try it out without worrying about the cost.
The card is a part of a slate of tools from Chase designed to encourage financial independence in young adults.

A strong competitor among student cards
The Freedom Student card is Chase’s debut in the student card space, but it’s set to be a top competitor. While it is not the first student card to offer 1% back on every purchase, a flexible rewards redemption scheme and automatic review for a credit limit increase set the card apart from the pack.
For students eager to get started in the rewards card realm, the card offers a first step into one of the most valuable rewards programs – Chase Ultimate Rewards. Plus, it encourages new credit card holders to develop positive habits by rewarding on-time payments and good account standing.
