Paying Your Bill Through Western Union

Making your tuition payments through Western Union is perfectly acceptable, but it can be costly if not done correctly. Follow the steps below to avoid being overcharged.

  • Go to the Western Union student payment portal.
  • Choose your country.
  • Enter the amount you need to pay for Housing, Student Accounts, or both.
  • Select "Get A Quote".
  • A quote page will then open and give you 1-3 options.
  • Choose the option that converts your currency to USD, rather than paying with USD.

Western Union makes its money converting your currency and will charge you a $20 fee for not using that option. This is unnecessary and adds up over time.
