Direct Bank Wire Transfers
Bank to Bank Wire Transfers are same day deposits if sent from a US bank. Direct Wire Transfer is available for an additional flat service fee of $25 per deposit, regardless of the amount, if made from a US bank. You must make a telephone arrangement with the OSEA Director to receive the correct banking information to set up the payment. This must be one day in advance of domestic wires, 5 business days for foreign bank transfers.
If you send payment from a foreign bank you must ensure that the amount received is in US dollars at the required amount plus a wire transfer fee of $45. Your bank will also directly charge you a fee for the wire. The amount that is received must take into account the correct foreign exchange rates such that the amount RECEIVED is equal the full amount of the total due include all tuition, program fees, late fees, bank handling fees, and foreign exchange commissions.
Wire deposits require prior arrangement with OSEA’s Director, Quetzil Castañeda, by telephone.
Participants have the option to set up a bill payment via their own personal Online Banking Services for bill payments. This requires 14 days advance arrangement for your bank to establish the connection with the OSEA bank. Thus this requires making a secure private phone communication with the OSEA Director in order to provide you with the OSEA bank information that is required.
There are no additional fees for this type of payment from your online banking bill pay services.
OSEA is now accepting the use of PopMoney for payments. This service is similar to PayPal, but has much lower sending and receiving fees.
You need to set up your account so that you can make payments with your debit card or from your bank account. Setting up your bank with popmoney takes 7-10 days. You must arrange this ahead of time to not be charged late fees.
PopMoney charges less than $1 for each amount of money sent regardless of the amount up to a maximum of $2000 US.
For most OSEA program costs, participants will have to make two payments. OSEA does not charge any additional handling or service fee for the use of Popmoney.com There is a 30 day maximum limit of amount of $5000 that can be sent from your bank account.
Popmoney is therefore ideal for the payment of all OSEA fees and the balance of payment. Due to PopMoney limits on the amount that can be sent in one day, the payment of the balance of tuition and fees would require two payments made over a two day period. PopMoney would therefore charge you $2. Please visit www.popmoney.com now to set up your account.
Application Fees only (not Registration Fees or Balance) are paid via Paypal without any cost.
When using Paypal you have the choice of payment method associated with your account (for example credit card, bank account payments).
Send payments to firstname.lastname@example.org
The use of Paypal for payments over $45 incurs additional handling and processing fees. These are charged to us by Paypal. Please consider use paypal for payments of large amounts as their is an extra cost that must be added to the to the amount of the payment to cover the handling and processing fees.
You can pay with your credit card by using one of the Online Payment Services. Currently OSEA is accepting payments via PayPal and PopMoney. PopMoney does not allow credit card payments, however. These have different service charges associated with making and receiving payments. Please check the providor's rates for this service and the OSEA additional handling rates for using these services.
