International Payments to JMU

Welcome to James Madison University!

JMU is now working with Western Union Business Solutions to provide individuals who live outside the United States an alternative method for paying student bills. This payment option allows you to pay your student account balance in the currency of your choice and provides a simple and reliable way of initiating payments electronically.

You have a lot to think about when attending a university abroad, including entering international markets to make payments for tuition and other university fees. Some of the complications you can encounter using payment processes such as international wire transfers or bank drafts include:

  • Payments are in a currency different from your local currency
  • International wires are costly due to high banking fees
  • Retail exchange rates are high
  • Payment details provided by your banking institution to the university are sometimes incomplete, which can cause delays in applying the payment to your student account


To start your payment process as a student outside the US please login to MyMadison or to start the payment as an Authorized User or a Guest please click on their links.

For more information on International Payments to JMU and how to continue to pay please go to our brochure or go to Wester Union's website to send money online.
