Wire Transfer

The Wire Transfer payment option is for students and parents who do not have a Chinese UnionPay bank card and therefore cannot use the online banking system to make their tuition payment.

Please Note

  • For the Office of the Bursar to ensure the wired payment is credited to the correct student, the student N number must be included with your payment detail. This detail is usually written on the payment notice that NYU Shanghai receives from the bank. If this information is not mentioned in your payment detail, we will not be able to identify the payment and credit your account accordingly.
  • Wire transfers often go through several banks. At any point in this process there is the possibility that the student N number may be removed from the transfer detail. To ensure that the payment is properly credited, we ask that each payee submit via email a scanned copy of the wire transfer receipt to with the subject "Wire Transfer Payment."
  • Once the wire transfer has been executed by the originating bank, please allow seven business days for your student account activity within eSuite to reflect this payment. After seven business days, the student should check his or her eSuite account via the Albert Student Center to confirm that the funds have been properly credited. If the wire transfer has not been credited to the student’s eSuite account, please contact the Office of the Bursar.
