Frequently Asked Questions

Which fees can I pay using this service?

This service can be used to make payment for all balances on your student account.

I can find my home country but it doesn’t let me use my home currency?

Unfortunately, due to international and domestic banking regulations, some currencies are unable to be traded on the open market or are otherwise unavailable. In the instances where your country appears as an option but the currency is unavailable, you can select an alternative currency including U.S. Dollar to ensure your payment will be posted to your student account quickly.
