Due diligence is completed every two years by BMTX college and university partners who review the BankMobile Vibe Checking Account and confirm that the low fees associated with the account are consistent with or below the prevailing market rates. This includes an analysis of the mean and median costs incurred by students who use the BankMobile Vibe Checking Account. It also entails a review of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's "Data Point: Checking Account Overdraft Report" and a comparison of the BankMobile Vibe Checking Account to other accounts from banks such as Wells Fargo, Chase, and Bank of America. Per regulation from the U.S. Department of Education, every two years, schools are required to attest that the account offered by a tier one provider is in the best interest of students.

Some of the BMTX college and university partners that have attested to conducting reasonable due diligence include the Austin Community College District, California State University, Bakersfield; California State University, Fresno; Los Angeles Community College District Office, Nassau Community College, SUNY Broome Community College, SUNY College at Oswego, SUNY College at Plattsburgh, SUNY College at Potsdam, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, SUNY College of Technology at Canton, SUNY College of Technology at Delhi, SUNY Corning Community College, SUNY Empire State College, SUNY Oneonta, the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville; and the University of Houston.

"It is an honor that the majority of the colleges and universities that we serve report that the BankMobile Vibe Checking Account is in the best interest of their students," said Luvleen Sidhu, Chair, CEO, and Founder of BM Technologies (BMTX). "As a company that invests in the financial education and literacy of students, this vote of confidence is a testament to the financial empowerment and easy to use disbursement and banking products that we provide to colleges and universities across the U.S."
