5. International Bank Transfer

We offer three options for international bank transfer payments: Flywire, PayMyTuition, and Western Union.

Flywire

Colgate University has partnered with Flywire to streamline the tuition and fee payment process to provide you with an easy and secure method of sending international payments.  With Flywire, you can pay from any country and any bank. You are offered excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money, as compared to traditional banks. You will be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process via a student dashboard and an e-mail confirmation will be sent to you when your payment is received by the school.  You will also receive peace of mind with dedicated multilingual customer support.

PayMyTuition

For international payments, Colgate University has partnered with PayMyTuition. PayMyTuition is an easy-to-use, safe, and seamless solution that allows international students to pay their tuition and fees in their local currency from any bank, in any country, at better than bank exchange rates.

Students can now efficiently make a payment with PayMyTuition to fund all their invoices and tuition-related fees.
