International students have multiple options for paying their Student Account balance.
Payments via AirWallex or other third party processors are not recommended at this time. If your payment is submitted via that vendor and creates a credit balance on your account, you will only be able to apply that credit to future charges or to your GWorld card balance. We strongly encourage you to use the Bank Wire Transfer option available via Student eBill to ensure your payment is posted to your account in a timely manner.
The university accepts bank wire transfers via the Student Account eBill solution. Payments made via the Student Account eBill solution will be reflected on your student account upon receipt of the wired funds.
Users paying in an accepted international currency will be able to lock in their exchange rate for 72 hours. Students and authorized users electing the wire payment method and selecting US Dollars as their currency option, regardless of the country of origin, will be assessed a non-refundable service fee of $20. This fee will appear as a separate transaction on the transmission form. For directions on how to submit a bank wire transfer through the Student Account eBill, please see the following instructions:
