International Payments ‑ Online

International payments may be sent through WU® GlobalPay for Students.  The preferred, fast and reliable service allows you to pay in your local currency using a range of local online payment options or bank transfer. 

NOTE: Money transferred to a student’s account should not exceed the annual charges associated with tuition and ancillary fees. All additional funds will be held on Account for future fees.

See Benefits

• You make payment in the currency of your choice. This amount is then converted to Canadian dollars.

• The exchange rate quote is locked in for your payment for 72 hours after the quote is obtained.

• The exchange rate is very competitive when compared to your financial institution’s retail rates, and bank service fees may be reduced since the wire transfer that you initiate is a local transfer.

• There are NO transaction charges from Western Union Business Solutions or Dalhousie University, though you may be charged a transaction fee by your bank.

• Efficient and timely posting: Please include your reference information to ensure your payment reaches your Dalhousie University student account quickly, typically two to five business days after your bank initiates payment.
