Step 5  Submit Payment

Verify the information entered. If correct, click “Submit Payment”. A “Transaction Pending” page will display, and a PDF document will open with “Payment Instructions” for your bank. A copy of the receipt with the “Payment Instructions” attached will also be emailed to the address you provided.

Step 6  Deliver Instructions to Your Bank

Deliver the “Payment Instructions” to your bank within 72 hours. The quoted exchange rate is only valid for that time frame. Your foreign bank will transfer funds via Western Union to the University of Nebraska –Lincoln.

Step 7  Payment Posts to Student Account upon Final Settlement

Once the payment is received via Western Union, the payment will post to your student account and can be seen on MyRED. Until this settlement, the payment is only PENDING and will not be seen on MyRED.

CAUTION: A new transaction must be initiated in the UNL E-Payment System each time payment is made .  Never use payment instructions from a previous transaction when making payment by International Funds Transfer.  Each payment is unique and needs to be properly identified or it will be delayed and possibly applied incorrectly.
