Wire Payment

International Wire Transfers

The most efficient means for an international student to pay their student account balance is through Flywire. This option allows you to lock in an exchange rate quote in your currency of choice and provides a simple and secure way of initiating an international wire transfer. This exchange rate will be locked in after the transaction is initiated for a set number of days (see generated Payment Instructions sheet for specific expiration date) and can only be used once. A new exchange rate quote will be required for each new payment or after the expiration date has passed.

Domestic Wire Transfers

Payment Related Disclosures

  • Students are responsible for accurate and timely payments. For a payment to be considered "on-time", the payment must be either received by our office, or made online via eCheck, on or before the due date. Finance charges will accrue daily at a rate of .027% per day on any past due balances. 
  • Payments in excess of the amounts due may be rejected by the University and returned to the payor. Any overpayment amounts accepted by the university may be refunded at the end of the term with the student's written request. A $50 processing fee will be deducted from the amount of the refund.
  • A fee will be assessed for each returned check or eCheck that does not go through. Repeated occurrences of returned checks will necessitate that the student's future payments be made through certified funds (cash, cashier's check, money order, or wire transfer).
  • An eCheck payment made in error may only be cancelled if the eCheck payment was made on a business day and a request to cancel the eCheck is received by the Student Accounts Office in writing before 2:00pm PST on the same business day.
