Student Payment Details 

Please be aware that all international transactions have bank charges. These fees depend on the instrument used. If you are not sure of the best method of payment, check with your local bank.  Payments can be made following one of the four options mentioned below:

Option 1 (The best option)

Western Union payment instructions

This is the easiest mean to transfer money to AUI in one day.  There is a limit of $3000 per month but you can contact www.westernunion.com for the balance. 

Go to www.westernunion.com and have your credit card ready:

Money should be sent in the name of Ms. Samira Rhioui at Al Akhawayn University, Ifrane, Morocco.

Western union will give the sender an MTCN number that should be emailed to Al Akhawayn University at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or be faxed to +21235862727.  Ms. Rhioui is the Cashier in the Office of Business Services and can pick up your money the same or at the latest the next working day.  She will verify by email that she has picked up the money from the Post Office on campus where Western Union orders are received.

 Option 2

Payment with credit card (credit card form pdf format.pdf)

If you plan to use a credit card for payment, make sure that your ‘spending limit’ is sufficient to cover the program costs. If you are not sure, check with your bank.  Payment by credit card is made in Moroccan Dirhams at the current day’s exchange bank rate.  This can be done by VISA or MASTER CARD only. Please find attached the form that should be filled in for this purpose. The form should be scanned and sent via email attachment along with a scanned copy of the credit card from both sides to This email address is being protected from spambots.
