Western Union Business Solutions provides Charles Darwin University with a reliable online payment application, Western Union Business Solutions student payment portal, which you can make telegraphic transfer and credit card payments.

We prefer this payment option because it helps to reduce the number of lost payments, allows CDU  to receive your payment for the full value and provides you certainty of up-front costs.

To pay, log onto International Student Payment Online and click on 'Student Fee payments'. The link will then take you to a new page where you will need to click on 'Student Fee Payment with CDU Student Id. Only'.

Step 1

Enter your student information.

Step 2

Enter amount of Australian dollars to pay.

Step 3

Select payment method – credit/debit card or telegraphic transfer.

Option one - telegraphic transfer

Select payment country/currency – due to international banking regulations some currencies are unable to be traded as part of this service.

In instances where your currency does not appear as an option, please select an alternative currency as the United States dollar.

Enter payer details and print document containing account information for Western Union Business Solutions. Transfer your payment at your bank or via your online banking service, if applicable.

Option two - credit/debit card

Enter card details, select currency and make payment.

Step 4

Finalise your payment.

Western Union Business Solutions will transfer your payment to CDU in Australian dollars, on the same day we receive your payment in full.

When these payments are made direct to an Australian dollar bank account, they can often be hard for the University to reconcile.

Any applicable bank charges mean that the payment may arrive short and it can take up to two weeks for the funds to be deposited into a student’s university account.

Western Union Business Solutions student payment portal can eliminate these issues. This may result in faster receipt of the Certificate of Enrolment and a quick start to the student’s visa application process.

Western Union Business Solutions student payment portal allows those with international credit cards to lock in the amount to pay when the payment is made.

Typically the rate of exchange is not readily available to the payer, who may only understand the local cost of the transaction upon receipt of their credit card statement.

This service includes a dedicated student enquiry hotline that will help you through the payment process.
