International Student Payments
International Payments to the University of North Carolina Wilmington Just Got Easier !
The most efficient means for an international student or any student using an international bank account to pay student fees is through Travelex's Bank to Bank Transfer. This option allows you to pay the U.S. dollar student fees in the currency of your choice and provides you with a simple and secure way of initiating a payment electronically.
Advantages of using Travelex's Bank to Bank Transfer include:
- You make your payment in the currency of your choice which will then be converted to U.S. Dollars.
- There are NO transaction charges from Travelex or from UNCW, though you may be charged a transaction fee by your bank.
- The exchange rate is valid for 72 hours after you have initiated the transaction. Your confirmation and payment must be received by Travelex within that period.
- The exchange rate is competitive when compared to retail rates of your financial institution and for many students their bank service fees are also reduced because the transaction is being initiated as a local transfer.
- Payments received will include your reference information and will ensure that your payment reaches your student account quickly.
