International Wire Transfers

Incoming International Wires:
Northern Illinois University has partnered with Flywire to offer an innovative and streamlined way for students and customers to make international payments. Flywire’s mission is to save international students, their families, and international commercial customers money that would otherwise be lost on bank fees and unfavorable foreign exchange rates. In most cases, payments can be made in a payee’s local currency, and the foreign exchange rates are excellent compared to traditional banks. In addition, payments will be posted to university accounts faster, and users will be notified by email when the transfer is complete.

International Student Payments:
Please see the Bursar's website for instructions.

International Non-Student Payments:
To send an international wire to Northern Illinois University for payment other than student tuition and fees, please contact Treasury Operations at Treasury@niu.edu or 815-753-6242.

Outgoing International Wires:
Requests for outgoing, international wire transfers must be initiated through Accounts Payable Services. Payments can be made in most foreign currencies or USD.
