Welcome to GICU's Achieving Credit Excellence (ACE) Challenge!

The ACE Challenge is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and tools needed to understand their current credit scores, manage and maintain a monthly budget, and use this information to help improve their credit scores over time. Members of Greater Iowa Credit Union with a current credit score of 679 or below are eligible to participate in the ACE Challenge to earn a rate decrease as high as 4% over the next 24 months (see rate reduction schedule below). 

We are committed to the financial success of our members and are excited to see all that will be learned, applied, and achieved over the next 24 months.  To start achieving credit excellence today, simply complete the two courses below and complete the ACE Challenge Attestation form.
