EAST LANSING, MI—MSU Federal Credit Union and Michigan State University have partnered to offer a new affinity credit card that bears the university’s logo and provides financial support for MSU programs. MSU alumni, fans, faculty, and staff will be able to show their support for their school by using their new Spartan Credit Card.

“We are pleased to be able to offer this fantastic affinity credit card to MSU supporters that not only allows them to reinforce their commitment to the university, it provides financial support to Michigan State University student programs, and offers our members a card with a great low interest rate, low fees, and the ability to show their Spartan Pride,” said Patrick McPharlin, MSUFCU President and CEO. “MSUFCU already offers what we believe are the most consumer friendly credit cards, and by providing our members with a card that supports their alma matter, everybody wins.”
