Flywire
Many of our international students studying at our institution are financially supported by their parents in their homeland. In other words, they rely on their families for payment of their class fees. So, Flywire makes international payments convenient by making payment by visiting our college website and finding the Flywire payment option. Some prefer this method over credit card payments or by wiring money to the student's bank account in the U.S., which creates a whole additional step in making payments.

We were previously using paper check requests or Jaeger for invoicing payments. We do still use them for anything other than travel. However, all travel-related items are processed through Emburse Chrome River Invoice--we are hopeful that in the future we will navigate to processing all payments in Emburse Chrome River.
