How to Pay

How to pay the application fee

After you submit an online application in CalStateApply for an International Gateways program, you will receive an email from IG Admissions with the application fee payment instructions and the link to the payment page. 


How and when to pay tuition

After you are admitted to an International Gateways program and receive an I-20 (for F-1 students) and Acceptance Letter, IG Admissions will send you an email with a link to the payment page and the payment instructions for tuition and the mandatory health insurance (required for F-1 students only). The payments need to be made before the first day of the orientation week (first day of the program).


Other Forms of Payment

Two payment options are available. 

  1. Pay with a credit card on the payment page, the link to which you received in an email from IG Admissions. Attempts to pay with a debit card are likely to be declined.
  2. If you would like to pay via international money transfer from a bank account outside of the US (FlyWire), please request the link and the payment instructions by emailing FlyWire allows you to save on bank fees and exchange rates, access multilingual customer support, and track your payment from start to finish. Please do NOT make a payment via SJSU FlyWire account! 
  3. While International Gateways is providing its services in the remote operations mode due to COVID-19, cashier check and money order payment options are not available.


Payments for other services

A fee of $150 will be charged for any repeated deferrals.

A late payment fee of $75 will apply for tuition payments made after the last day of continuing registration (for continuing students) and the announced tuition payment deadlines (for new students).

F-1 students are required to purchase the mandatory health insurance through International Gateways. You can find more information about the health insurance fees by visiting our Dates and Fees page.

International Gateways cannot accept payments for housing. Housing payments sent to International Gateways will be returned to the student and are subject to a 15 percent financial processing fee. Unfortunately, payments to International Gateways cannot be forwarded to other SJSU departments, including housing.
