E-Mail Payment/Money Transfers

Those wishing to make payment using credit cards can now do so using our web-based payment system.  Credit Card payments will include a non-refundable fee calculated at a rate of 1.75% of the total purchase.  This fee is displayed separately on the payment page, will appear separately on the credit card statement and is paid to the card processing agency, not to Trent University.

Western Union Bank to Bank Transfer for International Students

To avoid high retail exchange rates and banking charges related to international wire transfers, and to pay in your home currency and ensure your funds are clearly indentifiable to the university when they arrive, try the Western Union transfer.

  • Select the Western Union transfer link
  • Enter your personal information
  • Enter the Canadian dollar balance of fees you wish to pay
  • Select the payment currency (what you will pay your bank) from the list; if your currency is not listed, please use the International wire transfer method instead
  • Finalize the transaction by following the instructions
  • Take the confirmation page to your local bank; your bank will transfer the appropriate amount to Western Union.
  • Western Union will then forward the correct Canadian dollar amount to Trent University where it will be posted to your student account. Western Union transfers generally appear on your student account within approximately ten days from the time your bank initiates the transfer.
