    International Payments

    How to make a payment with peerTransfer

    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.

    Continue below or go to: https://www.peertransfer.com/school/uwlax/ 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 bill.

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Through the peerTransfer student dashboard you will be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process.
    • You will receive an email confirmation when your payment is deposited into UW-L’s bank account.
    • 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.
