Wire Transfer

If you are an international student and would like to pay your tuition via wire transfer, please contact the Coordinator of Student Accounts at The funds must reach Naropa's account by the tuition due date in order to be considered on time. Depending on your bank, the transfer may occur instantaneously or take as long as several days to occur. After you have completed the wire transfer with your bank, please email with the following information: 

  • student name
  • student ID number
  • wire transfer number
  • exact amount of the wire transfer, and
  • when the wire should arrive in Naropa's account.

Tuition Payment Plan

If you cannot pay tuition in full by the due date, Naropa offers a payment plan for the fall and spring semesters that breaks your tuition into four monthly payments.

You must be a degree-seeking student at Naropa and have at least a $500 unpaid balance in order to participate in this plan.

There is a $50 enrollment fee, and you must re-enroll each semester by submitting a payment plan agreement to the Coordinator of Student Accounts. Please find the payment plan agreement on the Billing & Payments page of MyNaropa

Alternate Billing

If you would like your bill to be sent to a third party (i.e., parents, trust fund, Vocational Rehabilitation, etc.) you must complete an Alternative Billing Address form. This will change your address for billing purposes only. 

Please be aware that we cannot discuss a student's account with anyone but the student. While an Alternative Billing Address form allows us to disclose the balance due, it does not allow us to discuss information such as what charge is connected to what class, what financial aid you are receiving, etc. Many parents and other bill payers do have questions about these things, and if you would like them to have access to this information, you must complete the online FERPA Waiver available on MyNaropa. This waiver will allow us to release all education-related information, including billing information, to whomever is indicated on the waiver. 


Refunds are available 7-10 business days from the time "Refund to Student" appears on your tuition bill. You can view your tuition bill through the Billing & Payments section of MyNaropa

For a faster and completely automated disbursement, we highly encourage you to sign up for our Electronic Refund via the Billing & Payments page of MyNaropa, which will deposit your refund directly into your choice of bank account.

If you do not choose to sign up for Electronic Refund, a paper check will be mailed to your address on file and may significantly increase your wait time as mail can take several days to arrive. This address can be updated on MyNaropa via the Personal Info link in the footer menu, and Biographical Data tab. 

Thank you for all your efforts!
