The following is information for international and National Student Exchange (NSE) students.
International students must pay by the standard university-posted deadlines.
CSUMB has contracted with Flywire to offer an innovative and streamlined way to make a payment from your home country.
Founded by a former international student, Flywire’s mission is to save money for international students and their families that would otherwise be lost on bank fees and unfavorable foreign exchange rates.

- From the main menu select, Self-Service, Student Center and then Finances
- Under the finance tab, Select the “Make a Payment” link
- In CashNet, Click “Make a Payment” on the left side column
- Select the type of payment you would like to make
- Enter the payment amount and click “Add to payment”

Scams are not uncommon, we encourage you to be on the lookout for scams and fraud when looking for ways to make your tuition payment.
Remember, using an authorized payment method (like Flywire or paying through the Campus Service Center) ensures that your payment is secure and safeguarded from money loss in any event.
Flywire provides 24/7 customer service, complete transparency, and tracking of your payment as well as a guaranteed price at the time of booking that is not affected by currency fluctuations. Additionally, if you find that you are able to receive a lower price from your bank than from Flywire, Flywire will match that price with its Best Price Guarantee.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us or a Flywire representative.
There is also a common and deceitful scam wherein a company falsely claims that it is representing the IRS (the U.S. Federal tax institution, the Internal Revenue Service). The company may call multiple times, leaving scary recordings stating that thousands of dollars are owed and that the call must be returned to avoid further penalty. In reality, it is extremely unlikely that you will be contacted by the IRS. In the highly unusual circumstance where this would happen, you would be contacted via posted mail.
Note that the IRS:
- Never asks for credit card, debit card or prepaid card information over the telephone.
- Never insists that taxpayers use a specific payment method to pay tax obligations.
- Never requests immediate payment over the telephone and will not take enforcement action immediately following a phone conversation.
- Taxpayers usually receive prior notification of IRS enforcement action involving IRS tax liens or levies.
