Foreign Currency Bank-to-Bank Transfer

The most efficient means for international students to pay their student account is through Travelex/Western Union's Bank to Bank transfer via Cashnet's Foreign Currency Payment Option. The University Of Dallas has contracted with Western Union Business Solutions to provide this simple and secure payment option through Cashnet which allows you to choose a foreign currency and obtain a secure, competitive exchange rate.

Advantages to using Western Union's Bank to Bank Transfer

There are NO transaction fees from Travelex/Western Union or the University of Dallas, though you may be charged a transaction fee by your bank. However, since the Travelex/Western Union transaction is in-country, the fee may be less than an inter-country wire transfer.

The exchange rate is competitive when compared to most banks' retail rates.

Payments include all of the necessary reference information to help us post your payment upon receipt.

Payments will be electronically transmitted to Cashnet ensuring timely posting, typically 2 to 5 business days from when you initiate the payment.

The Travelex/Western Union exchange rate is valid for 72 hours after the transaction is initiated, taking the uncertainty out of the total payment amount.
