International Payments

Self-Service allows students and their proxies to pay tuition and fees online. Quinnipiac partners with TransferMate and Flywire to provide payment options for our international students. Learn more about the processes for making international payments below.

International Payment System Options

Students and their proxies should review the two options and select the one that is most beneficial for their situation.


TransferMate provides a streamlined and secure payment method through the Self-Service portal that also reduces bank fees and improves the payment experience. With TransferMate, international students can pay tuition and fees in their local currency from nearly any country.

The benefits of using TransferMate include accurate currency conversions; competitive exchange rates; local currency payment methods; faster payment posting to the student’s account; and exceptional customer service.


Our alternate international payment provider, Flywire, provides a secured payment method for international students that includes a multilingual payment experience and help center, a streamlined payment process, and an integrated document approval process.

International Payments FAQs

For transaction-specific questions, contact TransferMate via Skype, Live Chat, Email or Phone. Contact TransferMate customer service

For questions relating to your student payment center, contact onestop@qu.edu

All international payments made through TransferMate are completely free of charge. However, your bank may charge for making a local transaction; this is, unfortunately, out of our control.

Domestic transactions are subject to a $20 fee to cover costs.

By law, TransferMate is required to identify the person transferring funds to their bank account. Your identification will ensure that you and your institution are protected against money laundering attempts.

Once your payment has been received, the pending payment will be removed and the transaction added to the Payment History in your student account center. Additionally, you will receive an email confirming that your payment was successful.

Once TransferMate has received your payment into the local bank account in your country, TransferMate sends your payment the same day from our account to your institution. These payments are generally received by your institution the same day if payments are received into our local account in your country before 2 p.m. GMT.

Your payments will automatically be posted to your student account within 24-48 hours from payment completion.

When the student registers the payment it is displayed on the home page as a Pending Alternate Payment Method. Once the payment is made, and funds are confirmed by Transfermate, the student account is updated and it can be seen in the Payment and Account History.

Students may set up authorized users to view their billing information and or their student bill on their behalf. Please note that, in accordance with FERPA, this does not allow the authorized user to view the student’s academic records, course schedule, or other personal information. Authorized users may view student account activity, make payments, and set up payment plans.
