  11. Foreign Currency Exchange Contracts – Lock in Your Exchange Rates For the Entire School Year:  Many of our students have expressed a need to be able to quantify the exact amount that their tuition will cost them in their local currency.   They want to be able to count on the tuition cost for the entire school year to be unchanged in terms of their own local currency.  This can be done via a financial instrument called a “forward exchange contract”.   The best news is that there is generally no transaction cost to the student to enter into a forward exchange contract.  If you are interested in locking in your foreign currency conversion rates for the entire school year, please contact a foreign currency exchange firm that offers forward exchange contracts to the general public.   For your convenience, we have identified two such firms that can help our foreign students to “lock-in” their tuition costs:
     
    AFEX-Associated Foreign Exchange, Inc.
    1-888-307-2339
    www.afex.com

    TRAVELEX Worldwide Money
    1-800-514-3166
    www.travelex.com
     
    Please note that a forward exchange contract may be disadvantageous to you if during the school year your local currency appreciates in value relative to the U.S. dollar.  
     Please also note that the above firms can also assist international students in wiring their tuition payments to Walla Walla University for a nominal fee.
