WIRE

Wire Transfers
To reduce costs, the Accounts Payable Department recommends use of direct deposit (ACH) transactions instead of wires to pay vendors, service providers, and other payees.  A wire is usually only necessary when making international payments electronically.   If a wire is necessary, please consult the Instructions for Completing a Wire Transfer Request, and then complete the Wire Transfer Request Form and submit it to the Accounts Payable Department.

Fees
All fees associated with a wire are the responsibility of the department requesting the wire.  At the end of each month, any wire fees for wires requested during that month will be charged back to the department that requested the wire.  Typically, a wire fee is $10 to $25.  Departments are not charged for ACH payments.
