Payment Methods:

Funds may be sent to the English Language Center by the following ways:
a. Checks payable in U.S. funds from a bank with U.S. affiliates. Make the check payable to "ELC."

b. Travelers checks in U.S. funds. Sign and cosign the checks/travelers checks and make the checks payable to "ELC."

c. Bank to bank transfers can be processed by going to: https://commerce.cashnet.com/webelc

You will enter your personal information. You will work through the screen process and then be directed to print out an instruction
form on how to finish the transaction. You will need to take the printed instruction form to your bank and make the transfer to
Western Union Business Solutions. Western Union will forward the converted currency in USD to BYU. At that time, your payment
will be considered paid. Make sure you follow the instructions completely to ensure prompt posting of your payment. There will be a
fee in your bank to do this transfer, and you need to ask your bank what the cost is to wire the funds.

d. Online credit card payments can be made at: https://commerce.cashnet.com/webelc

You will enter the students personal information and your credit card information into the website. Once the card has been charged,
you will receive an emailed receipt. International cards may not work through the credit card processor. If the transaction cannot be
completed with an international credit card, you will need to choose one of the other options (a, b, or c).
