Where should I send the money to?

In order to pay your application processing fee using Western Union please select this as your payment method in the drop down menu on the application- payments section. Visit a participating Agent location and keep in mind the following:

1. Important details: • Please note that you are sending a payment to an organization and NOT to a person, via Western Union QuickCollect (US and Canada) or QuickPay services (the rest of the world). • Remember to take an official ID with you. • You can pay with cash only. • Write down your applicant ID number at UoPeople and take it with you.

2. Depending on where you are, you may be asked to fill in a blue form OR give the clerk the relevant information: • Your personal information • Account number: your applicant ID number • Pay to: University of the People • Code City: UOPEOPLECA • State: CA • City: Pasadena (not always necessary)

3. Provide the agent with the amount of your bill (this is the "Final Application Processing Fee").

4. Commissions and fees for Western Union’s payment services ($5 USD) are the sole responsibility of the applicant. Applicants submitting payment via Western Union should expect to pay any applicable Western Union fees in addition to the amount owed for the Application Processing Fee.

5. The Agent clerk will process the Payment and give you a receipt. It is important that you keep this receipt. Once you have made your payment at a local Western Union Agent, please return to your online application, enter payment details and submit your application.
