Wire Transfer Funds SUNY Albany

The University at Albany has partnered with flywire to offer our international students the ability to make international wire payments for tuition and fees.  With flywire 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). This typically saves 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 flywire website. And, you will be notified via email when the University receives your payment.

Paying Over Time or E-Payment Plans

The E-Payment Plan was developed to help students pay off their financial obligations during a SHORT but set period of time, while attending the University at Albany. A non-refundable application fee of $45 is charged each semester you are enrolled in the plan ($25 for Summer).

Please note that it is NOT a loan program. And, it does NOT allow you to make payments over an extended period of time. For instance, if you enroll in the Fall E-Payment Plan, your payments are due on 8/15, 9/15, 10/15 and 11/15. Late installment payments are subject to late fees and holds.
