Flywire's mission is to save international students and their families money that would otherwise be lost on bank fees and unfavorable foreign exchange rates.  With Flywire, you can pay from any country and any bank.  You are also offered excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money, as compared to traditional banks.  In addition, the posting of the payment to your Houghton University student account will be faster, you will be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process via a dashboard, and you will be notified via email when the payment has been received by Houghton University.

How it works:

  • Go to to begin the payment process or submit the form on this page.
  • To get started, select the country from which your funds will be coming and the payment amount (in U.S. dollars) you wish to make to your student account.
  • In most cases, the U.S. dollar amount will be converted into your home currency at preferential exchange rates, which will translate into savings for you.
  • After providing some basic information, you will visit your bank (via phone, online or in-person) to send funds from your local bank to Flywire.
  • Flywire will then convert the funds to U.S. dollars and forward the U.S. dollar amount to Houghton University, where it will be directly credited to your student account.
  • Through the Flywire student dashboard, you will be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process.
  • You will receive an email confirmation when your payment is received by Houghton University.

No matter your time zone, you will have a dedicated multilingual customer support team available to you – reachable 24/7 via live chat, Skype, email and phone to answer any of your questions.
