International Payments

The University’s advancing financial growth and physical presence in international markets has resulted in a steady increase in payments needed via international currency and/or to international banks.  At present, our Banner ERP system only allows us to make payments/create purchase orders in USA currency. 

As a result, the Accounts Payable (AP) office must process international payment requests through a 3rd party software platform.  In order to ensure an efficient and timely payment process, the following documentation is required for EACH international payment request:

1) Direct Pay Form (DPAY)

  • Vendor Name and Address
  • Banner Index and Account Code
  • Payment Amount in Appropriate Currency (Euros, Canadian Dollars, Swiss Francs…etc)
  • Necessary departmental approval signature
  • Payments will be electronically wired unless if a paper foreign draft is requested on the DPAY

2) Invoice From Payee

  • Please provide a description of goods/services provided in the appropriate section of the DPAY form if necessary

3) Payee’s International Banking Information

  • Bank Accountholder Name
  • Bank Name and Address
  • SWIFT Code
  • IBAN and/or Account Number
    • IBAN Number is required for all European payments

Please note:  Additional information may be asked in some instances.  i.e.  UK vendors may require a sort code and Canadian vendors may require a transit code.

4) International Tax Form

PLEASE NOTE: THE UNIVERSITY DOES NOT WIRE PAYMENTS IN USA DOLLARS TO USA BANKS
