Wire Transfer

New York University has contracted with Western Union Business Solutions to facilitate wire transfer payments from non-U.S. bank accounts.

This payment option allows you to pay your student account balance in a number of currencies, provides a secure way of initiating payments electronically and incorporates pertinent student information to ensure timely crediting of the payment to the student’s bill. NYU and Western Union do not charge a fee for this service; however, you may incur wire transfer fees from your financial institution.

If you want to wire transfer a payment from a U.S. bank account, you may also use this Western Union service; however, we recommend using eCheck because it is a less costly and more efficient method for payments from U.S. bank accounts.  The link to the Graduate Stern eCheck
