The University of Toronto has partnered with WU
GlobalPay for Students to allow students from all countries outside of Canada
to pay the Canadian dollar payment in the currency of choice at a local bank
at a competitive exchange rate and with NO transaction charges from WU
GlobalPay or the University of Toronto.
Your local bank will transfer your local currency
fee payment to Western Union, and Western Union will convert your fee payment
into Canadian dollars and direct the payment to the University of Toronto.
The payment will be converted by WU at the rate the student has locked-in and
is guaranteed for 72 hours. The funds will then be delivered directly to the
University of Toronto with student identification information within three
If you choose to proceed, you will be transferred
to a secure website (by clicking on the WU GlobalPay link below) where you
will receive instructions on how to complete the payment to a local banking
institution in your currency of choice.

confident with the GlobalPay for Students payment process, please view the

be able to enter the Canadian dollar amount you wish to pay to the
University of Toronto.

transferred to the University of Toronto.

Select your preferred currency from a drop down
If your local currency is not listed on the drop
down menu, then select another currency on the list even if the country name
differs from your country name e.g. United States Dollar or Euro.
A conversion at a competitive rate of exchange
from the Canadian dollar amount will be applied to your chosen currency
through the Western Union real-time rate engine.
You will have the opportunity to view the payable
amount in your local or chosen currency before committing to the transaction.
Click OK and you will be presented with the
banking instructions to make the payment.
Take the banking instructions to YOUR BANK (DO
NOT take your bank instructions to a Western Union retail outlet)
immediately to ensure that the payment is transferred to Western Union within
72 hours to lock in the quoted exchange rate.
The exchange rate quoted will remain valid for 72
hours during which time you or the payer must take the banking instructions
to your bank, who will initiate the transfer of funds through Western Union
for credit to the University of Toronto.
Western Union must receive your payment within 72
hours of your receipt of the applicable currency quote.
In the event Western Union receives your payment
after the 72 hour period Western Union shall use the current exchange rate to
convert the currency.
Students cannot request another quote within the
72 hours period
After 3-5 business days, check the ACORN/ROSI
Payment Report under the Financial Account tab to confirm receipt of funds.
Upon receipt of the fee payment from WU, your
ACORN/ROSI account will be credited. While the transfer is in progress your
account will continue to show the outstanding amount. This normally takes 3
business days from the date of receipt of funds in the University of Toronto
