Billing Information

Billing information at DIS

All fees must be paid to DIS before arrival. Invoices will be issued via email to you as a student directly, or to any institution paying for its students, approximately six to eight weeks prior to the program start date and will be due 30 days from receipt.

Payments should be made in U.S. dollars only.

How to Make Payments

Follow the directions below based on the kind of payment you plan to make.

Check with your bank regarding any possible transaction fees associated with the DIS payment options or with transactions processed outside the U.S. All banking transaction fees are the responsibility of the sender and not of DIS.


Payment by Check

Checks can be made payable to DIS and sent to our Lock Box as follows:

Via standard mail delivery:

  • DIS
    DEPT CH 19918
    Palatine, IL 60055-9918
    USA

Via express delivery (e.g. FedEx, UPS):

  • DIS
    Box 19918, 5505 N. Cumberland Ave. STE 307
    Chicago, IL 60656-1471
    USA

Checks may take up to three weeks to appear in our system. Please note, national holidays can affect processing times.


Payment by Credit Card

Invoices for the Comprehensive Tuition and Housing fees can be paid by credit card, but all transaction fees (ranging from 0.8% to 3.75% depending on the credit card used) will be added at the time of the transaction. You will be able to see how much the transaction fees will be before you submit payment and can close out of the payment window without being charged. If you would like a receipt, please disable any pop-up blockers and you will have the option to receive a receipt from the payment system. Please note, at the moment you are not able to pay with an American Express card.

To make credit card payment log into Student Registration. Click ‘Pay invoice by credit card’ under Optional Steps and follow the instructions. Find Student Registration here

It takes approximately one week for credit card payments to show up in our system. We cannot take credit card information over the phone. Email studentfinance@disabroad.org with any credit card transaction questions.


Payment by Wire Transfer

Though some wire transfers can be done online, most often, you would visit your bank to request a wire transfer be sent. Follow the step-by-step instructions for the associated wire payment option to ensure the payment goes through successfully. The SWIFT code is only needed if you are wiring funds internationally from an account located outside the U.S.

Receiving bank information:

  • Receiving Bank: Nordea Bank Abp, New York Branch (may populate as Merita Bank)
  • Receiving Bank ABA #: 026010786
  • Receiving Bank SWIFT: NDEAUS3N

The SWIFT code is only needed if you are wiring funds internationally from an account located outside the U.S.

  • If your bank will not accept a foreign address, you may instead list our North American Office: 2233 University Avenue W, Suite 201, St. Paul, MN 55114

Wire transfers can take two to three days to appear in our system. Please note, national holidays can affect processing times.


Payment by Electronic (ACH) Transfer

Though similar to wire transfers, Electronic/ACH transfers are completely different transactions; they are payments that can be sent online directly from a person’s bank account to any recipient (such as DIS). If your bank account does not have this capability then you cannot use this payment option. Some ACH payments refer to transactions where the funds are pulled by the vendor (DIS), but that is not the type of ACH payment we can accept.

In addition, some banks will issue a paper check when a customer submits an Electronic payment request, in which case you should follow the Payment by Check instructions for the Lockbox listed above.

The Electronic/ACH Payment instructions are the following:

Nordea Bank Abp, New York Branch
1211 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10036
USA

  • Receiving Company: Fonden DIS
  • Receiving Bank ABA #: 026010786
  • Beneficiary Account #: 4125443001
  • Include DIS ID number from the invoice. If there is not a field to do this, email transaction details to payment@dis.dk
