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 two 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, ACH, credit card, wire transfer, peerTransfer, 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.

Electronic Payment Options

Tulane University offers two options for international electronic payment of university charges: peerTransfer and PayToStudy. 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.

Each vendor offers frequently updated currencies and countries from which payments may be made. Please contact these vendors directly if you require any more information about the services they provide. Contact information is available on their websites, linked below:

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.
