Exclusions include deferments (if paperwork is filed by the payment due date for the term) and payment plans (if payments are made according to the plan’s respective schedule).

We will not defer financial aid on all statements. Once reasonable time has been given for aid to be credited, it is your responsibility to make sure paperwork is processed.

International Payments


For international students studying on our Lewiston campus: Niagara University partners with three trusted vendors to offer cost-effective solutions for you to make wire payments from international bank accounts. All services are fast, simple, and secure, and you can track your payments from start to finish. Students are not permitted to make direct wire payments to a Niagara University bank account. Sharing university bank account information increases the risk of fraud and poses a security risk. All wire transfers should be completed using one of the services below — TransferMate, PayMyTuition or FlyWire. These services offer competitive banking rates, customer service portals, and a guarantee that your payment will be received and applied to your student account. We encourage you to compare rates and choose the option that works best for you. Students who do not use TransferMate, PayMyTuition or FlyWire and continue to make direct wire payments will be assessed a $250 wire transfer fee. Niagara University does not allow overpayments. If you transfer more funds than what is due on the student account, we may return the total or overpayment amount to the originating bank. In addition, payments made to the incorrect campus or in the incorrect currency may be returned to the originating bank.
