Wire Transfer Refunds

For students that do not have a United States bank account and do not have a United States mailing address, wire transfer refunds are available via Convera.

How can I request a wire transfer refund?

The UW-Madison Bursar’s Office will work to identify students who may qualify for a wire transfer refund. Once a student is identified, our office will contact the student with more information.

There may be a $20 transaction fee for processing wire transfer refunds in US Dollar.

UW- Madison Policy Regarding International Funds Overpayments:

The University is not a financial institution. Payments directed to UW-Madison should be rendered for the amount due on your UW-Madison eBill. Payments for off-campus housing or other personal living expenses must be directed to your personal bank account, not the University.  Please note: payments received in excess of the amount billed will be returned to the originating account.

Schedule changes that result in a tuition reduction and credit balance will also be refunded to the originating account.
