New Way for International Students to Pay!
The University at Albany, State University of New York, has partnered with peerTransfer to offer our international students the ability to make international wire payments for tuition and fees. With peerTransfer you can pay from any country and any bank. You are also offered excellent foreign exchange rates allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and typically save money, as compared to traditional banks.
In addition, the posting of the payment into your University at Albany account will be faster, you will be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process via the peerTransfer website, and you will be notified via email when the University receives your payment.
