Payments from Iran

Fairleigh Dickinson University understands that making payments from Iran is difficult. Iranian students are required to use one of our payment options. Refunds can only be done to the same person/agent who makes the initial payment. Therefore, it is important to use a trusted third party. Iranian students that have used Hafez Exchange have been able to make payments and receive refunds through them.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As of March 1, 2024, Flywire has informed FDU that they will not be able to accept and process payments for students ordinarily resident in Iran regardless of the country of origin of the payment or the nationality of the person/agency making the payment on behalf of an Iranian student. To alleviate the inconvenience that this may create, we want to remind Iranian students of our other available payment methods also listed on this page.

CAD Cheques and Bank Drafts

To make a Vancouver tuition payment in Canadian dollars, please check our Daily Currency Exchange Rate. We encourage students to compare our daily exchange rate with Flywire in order to obtain the most favorable rate.

Important Note: The exchange rate is updated at 9:00 AM (PST), Monday to Friday except on statutory holidays. For Saturday and Sunday payments, the exchange rate on Friday will apply.

FDU uses a fixed exchange rate for domestic students to calculate tuition and fees. The 2023 – 2024 exchange rate for domestic students is $1.35. This fixed exchange rate is updated every July. FDU applies the current fixed exchange rate at the moment of payment on balances for domestic students.
