How to make a payment

1. Sign into Student Services Online.

2. Click on the ‘Fees and Payments’ icon. The ‘Account Summary’ page will appear showing how much is due now and in the future.

3. Click ‘Pay by Flywire – International’ and follow the instructions on the page to transfer to the Flywire site.

You may need to allow the pop-up window on your internet browser, as Flywire opens in a new window.

4. Once redirected to the Flywire website, enter your payment amount and country of origin.

5. Follow the instructions provided to complete your payment.

  • For telegraphic transfer/bank transfer, allow enough time before fees due date for your bank to process the transfer.
  • For debit/credit card payments, enter your card details online to complete your payment in your home currency.

Single transaction limit: Contact your bank to check if there is a single transaction or daily limit on your account as they can remove this for tuition fee bank transfer. Some card issuers have daily or card limits also. You may wish to pay in smaller transaction amounts to avoid exceeding the maximum transaction limit.

Additional local payment options may be available depending on the country you are paying from.

6. Track your payment by logging into your Flywire account at any time. Receive text and email status updates each step of the way, including a confirmation when your payment has been delivered to your institution.

7. If you need help to complete your payment, contact Flywire customer support
