Cornell University has partnered with peerTransfer through Higher One to offer an innovative and streamlined way to make international tuition payments. Our joint goal is to save international students and their families money that would otherwise be lost on bank fees and unfavorable foreign exchange rates. This service offers 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 into your Cornell University account will be faster, and you will be notified via e-mail when it is received. From start to finish, the average time to complete the payment process is 2-3 business days.

Note: If you do not have a Net.Pay account, you can use the peerTransfer website.


  1. To get started, log in to the Net.Pay system, go to the Bills tab, and then click on Pay Now
  2. Under Payment Method & Account Information, click the link for International Payments
  3. Select the country from which funds will be coming and the payment amount in U.S. dollars that you wish to make to your student bill
  • 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
  1. After providing some additional, basic information, you will book the transaction and will be instructed via e-mail on how to pay peerTransfer from your home country bank account
  2. peerTransfer will then forward the U.S. dollar amount to Cornell University, where it will be directly credited to your bursar account
