INTERNATIONAL WIRE PAYMENTS: Farmingdale State College has partnered with Flywire to offer students an innovative way to streamline international education payments. Flywire's mission is to save international students money that would otherwise be lost on bank fees and unfavorable exchange rates. To make an international wire payment, go to Flywire, select Farmingdale State College from the list of schools and follow the steps.
No financial aid will be available to new international students through the State University of New York. Students requiring financial assistance should investigate all sources within their own nation.
