University of Kentucky has partnered with peerTransfer and Western Union to streamline the tuition payment process for international students.

Once you have initiated your payment, you will be able to login to peerTransfer or Western Union at any time to track the progress of your payment.
You have the option to pay with peerTransfer or Western Union using these links:
Monthly electronic student account statements will be sent to the student's university assigned email address. Accounts statements will be sent at the beginning of each month itemizing that month's new charges and credits.
If the TOTAL amount due is not received on or before the 22nd of the month, a fee of 1.25% will be assessed on the remaining account balance. Effective July 1, 2016, the late payment fee increases to 1.5%.
Students are ineligible to register for future semesters until the account balance is paid in full. Any past-due accounts may be referred to an outside collection agency which could result in collection fees. If the account is referred to an outside collection agency, the student agrees to reimburse the University for the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, the University incurs in such collection efforts.
Students who have a tuition sponsor (an embassy, government program, or any other agency/business outside the University of Kentucky) billed on their behalf of or all their tuition and fees must provide an official authorization.
The official authorization must meet the following criteria
- Must be on agency letterhead
- Must have an official signature
- Billing address of the sponsor
- Name and phone number of a contact person
- Specify the length of sponsorship
- Specify what fees or portion of fees sponsor will pay
Once documentation is provided, the student account will be credited and the sponsor will be billed directly.
To avoid late payment penalties, please submit your official authorization to Student Account Services by August 22nd for the Fall semester and January 22nd for the Spring semester.
Students who wish to use their KAPT benefits must submit a KAPT billing authorization form each semester.
All students registering during the Late Registration period will be charged a $40 non refundable processing fee.
A returned check fee of $25 will be assessed for dishonored checks. The University has the right to cancel the registration of any student whose tuition and fees are paid with a "returned check."
