New service available to transfer funds internationally

Dear International Student,

We are very pleased to announce a new service available to those of you who need to transfer funds from abroad to the University of Chicago to pay for tuition and fees. While you have always been able to do so via wire transfers, you have told us that those can be expensive, slow, and unreliable. The University has now partnered with peerTransfer to provide a system that has several advantages:

peerTransfer allows you to:

  • Pay from many different countries and banks;
  • Reduce the cost of foreign exchange;
  • Save money on bank fees and ensure your payment is received in full;
  • Receive peace of mind with 24x7 multilingual customer support;
  • Track your payment from start to finish.

peerTransfer ensures that your international payment can be easily identified and posted to your student account. You can begin the payment process by going to or by clicking the peerTransfer link when you are paying your E-Bill. You can also register online via, the University portal for student services.

For questions about making a payment with peerTransfer, please email

For questions regarding billing and related matters, please email the Bursar’s Office at .

With best wishes for an excellent start into the new academic year,

Michael Kocelko, Bursar and  Tamara Felden, Director, International Affairs
