Electronic Funds Transfer
Please provide your bank with the following information in order to wire funds, and ensure that the student’s name appears on the transfer. Funds must be sent in U.S. dollars.
Please note, the College's bank does not charge a wire transfer fee, however your bank or an intermediary bank may charge a fee without you being aware of it, in which case your payment to us will be short by the amount of the fee. As the College can not absorb the cost of the fee, please check with your bank before you make a wire transfer to Occidental so you are fully informed about the cost of making your payment in this form.
