The exchange rate on your Convera wire transfer request is ONLY valid for 72 hours for the amount specified. If a student arranges for a wire transfer using information from a previously used form/document, or from an incorrect form (amount change, currency change, etc.), the payment will be delayed.

A few minutes after you click the 'Proceed to payment' button for a wire transfer payment request, you will receive an email for your 'PENDING' wire transfer payment with instructions about submitting the wire request instruction sheet to your bank to COMPLETE the payment request.  Depending on your bank’s requirements, you will need to submit the form to your bank either in person, online or by telephone. 

If you do not submit the payment request form to your bank within 72 hours or if you change the payment amount or currency, you will need to go back online to the myTC ePayment site and create a new Wire Transfer request form.

The Office of the Bursar will post your wire transfer payment to your student account as soon as we receive notification from the College’s bank that it has been received.
