HOW CAN I PAY MY TUITION?
Options are listed below:

1. Directly wire funds to the university.
2. Open up a local bank account at First Miami and pay online or write a check with your account. This gives you more flexibility to trace and manage your money in case errors occur during a transaction.
3. Pay by credit card. This is convenient, but you will be charged a convenience fee: 2.9% for bills up to $3,000 and 2.3% for any amount over $3,000.
