How to Make an International Payment

Students or their Authorized Users can process an international payment by:

  1. Click the Make Payment tab in their Student Account
  2. Select "International Payment via Flywire" as the payment method
  3. Select the country to pay from
  4. Choose from the available payment methods (for example, international credit and debit cards, wire transfers, and other options). 
    A non-refundable 3.95% service fee will be added to all international credit/debit card transactions.

This is the University's only approved method for inbound payments to the student account from outside the U.S. and ensures that payment can be credited to a student’s account the moment we receive it. 

Processing Time

It typically takes three (3) to five (5) business days for the University to receive the payment; therefore, please be sure to initiate a transfer so that the University will receive payment by the appropriate deadline.

Refunds of International Payments

Funds received through Flywire must also be refunded through Flywire. Unfortunately, we cannot return international payments directly through the office, as they must be refunded in the currency paid. Refunds of international funds must be requested in writing via Please allow 10-14 business days for the University to process this return.
