International Wire Payments
For International students only, the University of Wisconsin–La
Crosse has partnered with peerTransfer to offer an innovative
and streamlined way to make international tuition payments.
peerTransfer’s mission is to save international students and
their families money that would otherwise be lost on bank fees
and unfavorable foreign exchange rates. With
peerTransfer, you are offered excellent foreign exchange rates,
allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and
save a significant amount of money, as compared to traditional
banks. In addition, the posting of the payment into your
University of Wisconsin – La Crosse account will be faster, and
you will be notified via email when it is received.
Click or go to: uwlax.peertransfer.com to begin the payment process.
To get started, select the
country from which your funds will be coming from and the
payment amount (in US dollars) you wish to make to your student
You will need your nine (9) digit UWL Campus ID number.
In most cases, the US dollar amount will be converted into your
home currency at preferential exchange rates, which will
translate into savings for you.
If your home country’s currency is not listed, you can still use
peerTransfer. The wire transfer payment will just be made
in US dollars from your bank in your home country.
After providing some basic information, you will visit your bank
(via phone, online or in person) to send funds from your local
bank to peerTransfer.

deposited into UW-L’s bank account.
