International Payments

A standard wire transfer has no tracking capabilities and may take up to 4 weeks to complete. We strongly encourage you to consider making your international payment through Flywire (formerly peerTransfer). This method allows you to:

  • Execute, track, and confirm your international payment online
  • Pay from any country and any bank
  • Transfer funds faster than wire payments (average 2-3 days)
  • Link international payments directly to the student's account
  • Save on bank fees and ensure the best exchange rates with Flywire's Best Price Guarantee
  • Receive 24/7 email, live chat, or phone support
