Methods of Payment

Online: You can simply make a payment by using a valid credit card at Student Portal

Cash: Cash is only received at the Accounting Office, on campus. Please do not send cash payments through mail.

Check: All checks should be payable to Virginia International University and should have the student ID number written on the front. Already endorsed checks are not accepted. Checks must be payable in US dollars with an intermediary Bank in the US.

Wire Transfer: VIU offers two options for students wishing to pay via wire transfer:

GlobalPay: We offer a simple electronic payment mechanism through Western Union Business Solutions called GlobalPay which allows students to pay tuition and fees using their local currency. Our hope is that this option will save students money on exchange rates and bank fees. Payments made via GlobalPay are credited directly to your student account in as few as two (2) business days. 

Depending on your country and region, you may have different options for GlobalPay payment via local bank transfer, credit card, Western Union Agents, or ChinaPay. (More information is available here.) Your payment options and availability will vary by country and region.
