GlobalPay by Western Union

For payments originating from outside of Canada.

This payment option allows you to pay your student fees in the currency of your choice, which will then be converted to Canadian dollars with no additional transaction charges from Western Union or the University of Manitoba.

Payments will be electronically transmitted to the University of Manitoba typically within 2-5 business days from the time you initiate payment and will be posted to your student or Homestay account.

Note: A transaction fee may be charged by your bank and exchange rates are valid for 72 hours after the transaction is initiated.
