FlyWire (For International Students—International Wires)

Pratt Institute has recently partnered with FlyWire to offer an innovative way to streamline your international tuition payments. Developed by an international student, FlyWire offers a simple, secure and cost-effective method for transferring and processing education payments in foreign currencies.

By offering favorable conversion rates unmatched by larger financial institutions, FlyWire enables our international students to pay from any country and any bank while saving a significant amount of money on their payments to us. Furthermore, students will be able to track the progress of their payment throughout the transfer process which will reduce incoming phone calls. Because FlyWire captures all the student information at the time of payment, our students will be alerted when their payment is received. FlyWire provides an online dashboard that will help us in identifying your funds.  

You may access this information via MyPratt or you can find the link to the FlyWire solution at

Please remember: The funds are transferred and your country will determine if there is a need for you to initiate the wire transfer in person at your local bank. The funds typically take 5–7 business days to receive.

Funds received in excess of tuition from Flywire will be returned via Flywire.


Student Financial Services (SFS) is committed to assisting students in meeting the cost of a college education. Financial aid has helped millions of students pay for their education beyond high school. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the key to some of the best resources available to you to fund your education. Therefore, it is important to complete the FAFSA by March 1 annually. We want our students to take advantage of all the grants, loans, and work-study opportunities available to them. Should you need assistance, your designated SFS Counselor is ready and eager to assist you with navigating through the financial aid process.

We hope the information provided will answer questions asked by most financial aid recipients. Financial Aid at Pratt is awarded on the basis of an academic year (award period). Most financial aid is disbursed in two equal payments over the award period.

The Funds Will Be Sent No Later Than 14 Calendar Days After The Term Begins And/or The Credit Appears On Your Account.

Plus Loans processed require a separate authorization from the parent who borrowed the loan in order to release the excess funds to the student. Students are responsible for payment of tuition and fees incurred after any credit balance refund has been released (i.e. changes in registration and/or meal plans or residence hall fees). Credit balance refund distributions are made in accordance with applicable federal guidelines.

A separate Authorization is required from a student/parent in order for Pratt to hold the excess funds on a student’s account to pay non-institutional charges, future semester institutional charges within the same award year the excess funds derived from (i.e.  Excess funds derived from fall’s Title IV funds to pay for spring’s semester charges), and/ or to pay minor charges, not exceeding $200, from a prior semester(s).

Refunds are released to eligible students within 14 days after the term begins and/or the credit appears on your account. You must participate in your coursework to establish eligibility in order to continue to receive federal aid. Failure to participate in academically related activities will result in loss of eligibility of aid for all or part of the term. Disbursements may be delayed if you do not meet satisfactory academic progress for a prior term or there are incomplete files with the  Student Financial Services office.

A student will be liable for any portion of a refund received, or greater, should there be any billing adjustments to a semester’s registration, housing, meal plan, miscellaneous charges, and/or financial award amounts.

Collection Corner

If you have an outstanding tuition balance and if payment in full or payment arrangements are not made, your outstanding tuition balance will be referred to a collection agency. Once the account is referred to an outside collection agency it is then the student’s responsibility to contact the collection agency for arrangements to resolve their debt.

For those students who are on Bursar Hold, due to an outstanding tuition balance, payment in full must be received in order to receive an official transcript, a diploma, or participate in any future registrations.
