International Tuition Payments

UIU has partnered with Flywire to offer an innovative and streamlined way to make international tuition payments. Flywire’s mission is to save international students and their families money that would otherwise be lost on bank fees and unfavorable foreign exchange rates.

In addition, the posting of the payment into your UCM account will be faster. Click or go to: uiu.flywire.com to begin the payment process. 

  • To get started, select the country from which funds will be coming and the payment amount in US dollars you wish to make to your student bill. 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.  
  • After providing some additional basic information, you will book the transaction and will be instructed via email on how to pay Flywire from your home country bank account.  
  • Flywire will then forward the US dollar amount to UIU where it will be directly credited to your student account.  
  • You will receive an email to confirm receipt of payment.

As a parent or guardian, how will I know that my student has a bill that needs to be paid?

Due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), only students are provided access to their specific account information. If your student has set you up to receive account information, you will receive an account to myUIU to log in to view your student’s bill. If you are not set up for this service, it will be up to your student to notify you that there is a bill and provide you with the appropriate information. Students bills are not typically mailed. Bills are available to retrieve on myUIU > Finances > Student Account Info. Tuition payment is due by the Wednesday before each session begins for all students.

How can students access their statements online?

Students can access their Upper Iowa Statement of Account (tuition and fees, room, meal plan, bookstore, and other miscellaneous charges) online at myUIU > Finances > Student Account Info > Course and Fee Statement.

Is my student able to pay his/her balance online?

Students can easily make payments on their account through myUIU. These payments are immediately applied to their account.

As a parent or guardian, am I able to pay on my student’s account online?

Online payments can be made to student accounts by parents or other parties through the Emarket Tuition Payment website. The payer will need to supply the name and date of birth of the student for whom the payment is submitted. These payments will be posted to the student’s account the following business day.

What payment plan options does Upper Iowa University offer?

Upper Iowa offers interest free & $0 enrollment fee, payment plans based on where the student is taking classes. Fayette campus students are offered 12, 10, and 5 month payment plans. Center and Online students are offered 2 month or 4 month payment plans. Self-Paced students are offered 4 month or 6 month payment plans. Students paying past due balances are offered 6 month, 12 month, 18 month, or 24 month payment plans. Payment plans may be paid off early without penalty. Please contact the Student Accounts Department if you are interested in enrolling in a payment plan.

What are my payment options?

The payment process is simple and secure with these options:

  • You can make your payment via cash or check in person at the Business Office located in the Student Enrollment Center, Garbee Hall, 2nd
  • Students and parents are able to make payments directly from any personal checking account (Echeck) with no additional charges by using the Echeck web payment option. Simply enter the bank/financial institution routing and account number information at the time of payment.
  • Credit/debit card payments may be made through the secure only payment in myUIU.

Why is there a service fee for debit & credit card payments and why am I paying for this?

The service fee is assessed by the credit card companies to cover operating costs and the costs associated with servicing hundreds of credit/debit card transactions. You will be informed of all fees before you authorize your payment.

How can I make a payment online?

Through myUIU if you have your Upper Iowa log-in and password. Once you are logged in, select the Finances tab, then click on “Make a Payment” found under the ‘My Account Info’ section.

How can I make a payment if I do not have access to myUIU?

You can make a payment through the Upper Iowa Emarket Tuition Payment website. You will be required to enter the Student’s Name and Date of Birth prior to making the payment.

Is there a fee to pay online?

There is no fee if you pay with an electronic check. There is a service fee if you pay with a debit or credit card. The fee is 2.95% for domestic card transactions, and 4.25% when using an international card. The minimum service fee for card transactions over $20 and less than $106 will be $3. The service fee is added to the transaction amount being paid.

What is an electronic check?

An electronic check is an online check. Enter your checking account number and bank’s routing number to transfer funds from your designated bank account to the University.

What is ACH?

ACH is Automated Clearing House and is another term for electronic check.

Do I need checks to make an electronic check payment?

No. You just need the routing number and bank account number for the account from which the payment will be deducted.

How do I find my routing number and my account number?

At the bottom of each check you will find the nine digit routing number and the account number. You can also contact your bank for these numbers.

Does my debit card work like an Echeck?

No. If you use the debit card number, the transaction will be treated like a credit card transaction, and you will pay an additional service fee. To avoid paying the fee, use the electronic check option and pay out of the bank account associated with your debit card.

What types of credit cards are accepted?

MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express are accepted.

Can I make a credit card payment at the Upper Iowa Business Office?

No. The Business Office does not accept credit card payments in person or over the phone. We only accept check or cash payments in the office. If you wish to pay with a credit card, we’d be happy to show you how to pay online when you stop in the office.

What happens if I get a refund?

If you qualify for a refund on any part of your credit card payment, the refund will be applied back onto your credit card. As a reminder, the service fee that was applicable to that amount is nonrefundable.

How can I pay from overseas?

International payments may be made through Upper Iowa’s international payment partner, Flywire. Flywire is an innovative and streamlined way to make international tuition payments to Upper Iowa. Flywire offers excellent foreign exchange rates and allows payers to pay in their home currency (in most cases) and save significant amount of money, as compared to traditional banks. Visit uiu.flywire.com to begin the payment process.

What happens if my credit card is declined?

If your card is declined, try entering your payment information again or try using an Electronic Check or another credit card. If your card is declined after several attempts, contact your issuing bank for additional information.

What happens if my Echeck is returned?

If any payment that you make is returned or refused by your bank for any reason, you will be charged a $25 Returned Payment Fee for each returned or refused payment.

What happens if I am late on my payment plan?

If your payment is late, you will be charged a late payment fee of $25, and your student account will be coded with a status of late.

Will I receive confirmation of my electronic payment?

Yes. You will be provided a confirmation number at the end of your transaction. The confirmation number and your credit card or bank statement will provide confirmation of your payment. If you pay via the Internet, you will be issued an onscreen digital receipt, which can be printed as your record of confirmation and transaction. If you provide an e-mail address, you will receive an email verification of your online payment.

What is a book voucher?

Book vouchers are issued through our bookstore as a means for students to charge their books to their student account at Upper Iowa. The book charges are intended to be paid with the student’s financial aid.

Book voucher eligibility is determined through the registration period. If financial aid eligibility changes or decreases, the student is responsible for the book charges that financial aid does not cover.

Why do book vouchers expire?

Book Charge ID’s expire after the first week of class in order to allow time for all student charges to be finalized before Financial Aid disburses during week 3 of the session.

When will I receive my refund from excess financial aid?

Financial aid is disbursed the third week after the session starts. Then the Business Office refunds any overage within 14 days after the aid creates a negative balance on students’ accounts. The overage is refunded through BankMobile, and students receive their funds based on their selected refund preference.
