CUNY Announces New Option for International Payments
In an effort to reduce administrative challenges, CUNY now has a new option for international students to make payments in your local currency.
Just log into your CUNYfirst Student Center and click on the Make a Payment button, which will take you to Nelnet QuikPAY. Then select View & Pay Accounts from the left-hand menu. Enter your payment amount in US Dollars and from the Payment Method dropdown box, choose International Payment. Nelnet will then transfer you to Convera’s platform GlobalPay for Students.
You will be presented with several payment options to transfer your funds to Convera. Depending on which country you are making your payment from, GlobalPay for Students allows you to use Providers such as UnionPay and Alipay in China, ICICI in India, Sofort and iDEAL in Europe, and Hana Bank in Korea.
Convera will send your payment to CUNY. Upon receipt of your payment, your student account in CUNYfirst is updated.
