International Payment Options

Use this page to learn about options for making payment to Tulane University from a non-US bank. Funds must be received by Tulane in U.S. dollars, but we do offer third-party vendor solutions detailed below to streamline the currency exchange and transfer process if desired.


Payments should not exceed the amount of university billed charges. Payments made to student accounts by check, electronic check (ACH), credit card, wire transfer, Western Union, Flywire, or Pay to Study in excess of billed charges cannot be disbursed to the student but will be returned to the originator.

Ensure your payment reaches us by the due date. Please be sure to initiate your international payment well in advance of your billing statement due date to ensure proper posting by the statement deadline to avoid finance charges.

International Payment Options

Tulane University offers three options for international payment of university charges: Western Union, Flywire, and Pay to Study. Each of these vendors offer excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in many cases) and save a significant amount of money, as compared to traditional bank wires. In addition, the posting of your payment into your University account will be faster, you will be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process, and you will be notified via email when it is deposited into your University account.

Please contact these vendor directly for further information about the services they provide. Payment instructions and contact information is available on their websites, linked below:

  • Flywire
  • Pay to Study
  • Western Union  (available as a payment option within the Student Accounts portal)

Traditional Bank Wire Payment

Tulane University will continue to accept traditional bank wires. Funds must be received in U.S. dollars. The PDF document linked below should be completed and submitted to your bank to initiate the transfer. It is essential that the wire include a memo with your accurate 9-digit student ID number for credit.

Please consider:  In most cases, if you are able to utilize one of our international bank transfer partners, you will save on the currency exchange rate and in bank fees, among other benefits detailed above.
