  • Improved accountability and internal control
  • Reduced resources required for cash handling and management
  • Minimize risk and improve transparency of transactions

International Payments

UST has partnered with both Flywire and TransferMate to offer two streamlined options to make international payments.  Read on for additional information about each option.

Flywire

Flywire's mission is to save international students and their families money that would otherwise be spent on bank fees and unfavorable exchange rates.  With Flywire, students are offered fair foreign exchange rates and the ability to pay in their native currency (in most cases), thus allowing for cost savings as compared to traditional banks.  In addition, more identifying information can be transmitted with the payments, allowing for quicker and more accurate payment application to the student account.

Click or go to:  https://www.flywire.com/school/stthomas to begin the payment process.

  1. Select the country from which funds will be coming from and the payment amount in US dollars which will be paid toward the student account. 
  2. Next select your preferred payment method (ie - bank transfer, credit card, Alipay, UnionPay, etc...).
  3. After providing some additional basic information, book the transaction.  Instructions will be sent via email on how to pay Flywire from the home country account.
  4. Flywire will then forward the US dollar amount to UST where it will be applied to the designated student account.
  5. Flywire will send an email to confirm receipt of payment.
  6. Flywire offers dedicated customer service at all times reachable via chat, Skype, email, and phone to provide assistance.
