United States International University Fee Payment Methods

In this production, we aim to provide the university’s 2020 fee schedule. USIU makes fee payment avenues available to Kenyans and Internationals by accepting fees in the Shilling and Dollar currencies. The students are required to make their payments by bankers’ cheque or deposits as cash payments are not acceptable within the finance department.

The United States International University- Africa requires payments to the school be made at stipulated banks including the Commercial Bank of Africa, Standard Chartered Bank, Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB), Co-operative Bank of Kenya and JP Morgan Chase Bank in New York City, USA.

The University allows payments to be made using card methods for those who wish to swipe their credit or debit cards. This cashless method of payment is highly recommended especially in the present day of a worldwide virus spreading via any forms of contact. Physical handling of money has been greatly discouraged in a bid to minimize the spread of the virus among the population.
