Make a Payment or Transfer

There are many different ways to make your transfer or payment to or from Cal State L.A. Federal Credit Union. Many of these transfers or payments can be scheduled to occur regularly.  We offer a variety of free choices for making your payment. 

If you prefer to make your payment with a debit card from another bank, or as a one-time payment using an account number and routing number from another bank, there may be a fee for this service.  Click here to make a payment.
