Payment is not accepted on campus.

International Currency Transfer

Our preferred method for international payment is GlobalPay for Students. Carleton University has partnered with Western Union Business solutions to provide a fast, easy and affordable way to pay tuition and other fee costs in a student’s local currency. This platform allows you to pay locally from your home bank, saving money on exchange rates and banking fees, ensuring the full value of your payment reaches Carleton University.

GlobalPay for Students also offers convenient payment options for those paying from China and India.

Note: This is not  a payment through Western Union Agent locations (except in the case of some payments from India). You will simply be paying a Western Union Bank Account and then Western Union transfers the funds to Carleton University in Canadian dollars.

Please note that each payment requires its own individual quote.

In the event your account is in a refund position, we must send the refund back to the original sender’s account. Refunds will use the exchange rate valid at the time the refund is processed. Student Accounts will not issue a refund in Canadian funds.
