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.

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 bill.

o    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.

o    peerTransfer will then convert the funds to U.S. dollars and forward the US dollar amount to University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where it will be directly credited to your student billing account.

o    Through the peerTransfer student dashboard you will be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process.

o    You will receive an email confirmation when your payment is deposited into UW-L’s bank account.

o    No matter your time zone, you will have a dedicated multilingual customer support team available to you -reachable 24/7 via live chat, Skype, email and phone to answer any of your questions.
