Wire Transfers

Wire transfers can be used to move money from the University's bank account directly to the account and an individual, business or institution. Wire transfers can be used in conjunction with ePayment requests. To prepare, complete the appropriate wire transfer form (see below) and request the required information from the recipient. Then attach the completed wire transfer form to an ePayment request with the usual supporting documentation.

Any transfer fees charged by either the University’s bank, the recipient’s bank, or other intermediaries will be deducted from the payment amount. The University does not control these fees and therefore it is difficult to predict how much they will be in any given case. The initiator may request the University to not deduct its fees from the payment. To do so, the he/she must indicate “Do Not Deduct Fees” on both the wire transfer form and the ePayment request and enter the account number to be charged in the “special instructions” box on the wire transfer form. There is a $25 fee for this service and only applies to charges from the University’s bank. Any charges from the recipient’s bank and other intermediaries will still be deducted. Ensure that the recipient is aware of these details before attempting a wire transfer.

Note: Wire transfer forms are for internal use only and should not be given to the recipient to fill out and return.
