Payment Instructions for International Students

SUNY Cortland has partnered with peerTransfer in order to streamline the process of international payments. peerTransfer allows you to pay securely from any country and any bank, generally in your home currency.

By making your payment with peerTransfer you can:

  • Track your payments from start to finish
  • Save on bank fees and exchange rates
  • Contact their multilingual customer support team with any questions, day or night.

To make your payment, visit www.peertransfer.com

Monthly Payment Plan

SUNY Cortland offers the option of paying your Fall and Spring semester bills in four (4) equal monthly installments. There is a one-time per semester application fee of $45 that must be paid with the first installment. The application fee is non-refundable. There is no monthly payment option for the winter or summer semesters due to the short duration of these terms.

To apply, select the option if paying online. If paying by mail mail the correct payment amount. The required payment is listed on your semester bill and listed as "Minimum Amount Due," which includes the $45 application fee.

Payments are not processed automatically. Students (or Authorized Payers) must initiate payment activity every month. All students enrolled in the payment plan and any authorized payers will receive electronic notices of monthly bills with payment due not later than the 15th of the following month. The first payment for the Fall 2013 semester is due on or before Aug. 13 and the three subsequent payments are due in September, October and November. The first payment for the spring semester is due in early January and the three subsequent payments are due in February, March and April.
For further payment information or questions please contact the Student Accounts Office

Confirming Attendance and Accepting Charges

Students with or without a balance due must still accept their charges in order to secure their spot in the classroom. This must be done on or before the date indicated on the face of the semester bill. For detailed instructions, select Accept Your Charges When You Have a Credit Balance.
