The International Office can accept international wire transfers for current students enrolled at the University or in the English as Second Language (ESL) Program. The funds wired should be for the purpose of attending the University.
The University charges a $5 wire fee, which will be taken directly from the wired amount. This is in addition to any other fees charged by the sending bank or any intermediary bank involved. Therefore, the amount wired should factor in these amounts. (Note: the University wire fee is subject to change.)
Once the wire has been initiated, the student must email Ms. Ruth Sogas-Paramio, the accountant in charge of claiming wires for the International Office. In the email, please include:
This information will be used to claim the wire on the student’s behalf when it arrives at the University’s account.
Once received, the wire is generally applied to the tuition bill and to any overdue charges owed to the University. If there is a remaining balance, the student must instruct our office on how to proceed. A refund/return of funds is not automatic.
If the funds are used to pay tuition for an upcoming semester, be mindful of deadlines. The International Office will clear tuition balances only after the funds have been received. Please allow at least two weeks (or more, when the University is on holiday) prior to any tuition deadlines. The International Office is not responsible for any missed deadlines. If these deadlines cannot be met, please email Ms. Ruth Sogas-Paramio immediately.
