For questions relating to your student payment center, contact the Student Accounts office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (419) 517-8444.
Will I be charged for using this service?
All international payments made through TransferMate are completely free of charge, although you may be charged by your bank for making a local transaction. Domestic transactions are subject to a $20 fee to cover costs.
Why do I need to provide identification?
By law, TransferMate is required to identify the person transferring funds to their bank account. Your identification will ensure that you and Lourdes University are protected against money laundering attempts.
How will I know my payment has been successful?
Once your payment has been received, the pending payment will be removed and the transaction will be added to the payment history in your student account center. Additionally, you will receive an email confirming that your payment was successful.
How long does a transaction take?
Once TransferMate has received your payment into the local bank account, TransferMate sends your payment the same day to Lourdes University. These payments are generally received the same day if they are received by TransferMate before 2pm GMT.
When will my payment be posted to my student account?
Your payments will automatically be posted to your student account within 24-48 hours from payment completion.
Where are TransferMate payments shown in my student account?
When the student registers the payment, it is displayed on the home page as a Pending Alternate Payment Method. Once the payment is made, and funds are confirmed by TransferMate, the student account is updated and can be seen in the Payment and Account History.
Can my family or other authorized users have access to my Student Account?
Students may set up authorized users to view their billing information and or their student bill on their behalf. Please note that, in accordance with FERPA, this does not allow the authorized user to view the student’s academic records, course schedule, or other personal information. Authorized users may view student account activity, make payments, and set up payment plans. Parents, Alumni and other payers may visit the following link to sign up for a payment plan or make a one-time payment. If you have not received a username, please contact the Student Accounts office at email@example.com or call (419) 517-8444.
