International Wire Transfers for International Students and for U.S. Students Living Abroad
Luther College has partnered with a company called Flywire to offer a streamlined way to make international tuition payments. Flywire’s mission is to save international students and their family's money that would otherwise be lost on bank fees or unfavorable foreign exchange rates. With Flywire, you can pay from any country and any bank. You are offered excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money, as compared to traditional banks. In addition, the posting of the payment into your Luther College account will be faster, you will be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process via a student dashboard, and you will be notified via email when it is deposited into our account.
