Payment Procedure/Instructions

Once the online application is accepted, you will be able to access payment information via your online application form. This information includes the exact amount to be transferred and your “virtual account number”. A virtual account number is an account number which is only intended for you, therefore DO NOT share your number with any other students. All payment that is received on that virtual account number will be counted as your payment.

HIWS accepts payment of program fees through both credit/debit card payment and bank transfers. All payments must be done through Flywire, a payment platform, within the payment period.

Payment deadline

Payment deadline is 3 weeks after your application date, but no later than the final payment deadline. November 18 for 2022 HIWS. Keep in mind that international transfers(including the credit/debit card payment) might take several days to be received. Payment is being checked by date of receiving, not the date of sending. Payments which are not correctly received will result in unsuccessful registration for HIWS. Please contact us timely if you experience any problems.
