Financial Information

All tuition charges due to the University of Central Florida must be paid in full by the payment due date published for each semester.

There are two types of tuition assessments: tuition rate and non-resident rate. UCF determines tuition charges based on whether or not the student is a Florida resident for tuition purposes.

  • Florida residents are charged the tuition rate only
  • Florida non-residents are charged both the tuition rate plus the non-resident fee. These two rates combined equal the full non-resident rate.


To view all assessed tuition and fees for your account by term, log on to myUCF.



There are four types of fee payment deferrals: financial aid, Florida prepaid tuition plan deferrals, third party payments and veterans'.

We will automatically adjust the Bright Futures award and/or Florida prepaid deferral found on your fee invoice from your total fee assessment to determine the amount due. Any fees not deferred by Bright Futures or a Florida prepaid plan will be shown in the amount due section of the fee invoice. Any enrollment changes will cause estimated aid listed on the fee invoice to update using actual enrollment hours. Ensuring that you have checked and completed all tasks on your financial aid "To Do List" can help us refund your aid more promptly.

Estimated Cost of Attendance

For any enrolled student who has a Florida Prepaid College Plan (FPP), the university will automatically defer only the portion of tuition rate covered by the plan. FPP tuition deferrals will also be reflected on your fee invoice. All fees not covered by the plan or financial aid are due by the tuition & fee payment deadline.

For Veterans Administration deferrals, ensure you turn in your enrollment certification by the last day of add/drop to the Veteran Affairs Office, which is in Millican Hall, Room 161.

Students whose employers will be paying their tuition and fees may enroll in a Third Party Billing Agreement/Promissory Note allowing UCF to bill their employer directly. The third party agreement does not defer tuition, and the student is liable for all fees if the third party source does not pay the invoiced tuition and fees.

WAIVERS Information

A student that is enrolled in a course becomes fee liable for all tuition and fees due unless the student drops the course during the term add/drop period. If a student cancels a course after the add/drop period, it is considered a withdrawal and they are liable for all fees assessed.

Students may adjust their schedules (i.e., add or drop classes) throughout registration and add/drop. Senior citizens, transient students, State University System (SUS) transient students, audit students and UCF and State of Florida employees should see the appropriate "University Policies and Procedures" for registration information and details.


Acceptable forms of payment are major debit or credit cards, checks, money orders or cashier's checks. A mandatory, 2 percent nonrefundable convenience fee will be charged each time a student chooses to pay online with a credit card. We will honor checks placed in the cashiers' night depository (drop box) located on the pond side entrance of Millican Hall on or before the payment deadline as being on time.

Satisfactory payment includes paying the total charges or completing all financial aid forms and waiting for accepted financial aid to disburse. Incomplete financial aid awards are considered to be late payments. Additional charges will be assessed to the student's account for checks returned by the bank for insufficient funds or stop payments.

Refunds of financial aid, tuition overpayments and the like are refunded on an ongoing basis. Refunds can be processed either by direct deposit to a student's U.S. bank of choice or via mail to the current mailing address of record. Financial aid refunds for a current term will not begin until after the add/drop period has ended.

If a student's account becomes delinquent, current students will not be allowed to register for the next semester and graduating students will not receive a transcript or a diploma. In addition, a delinquency report may be referred to an outside collection agency and reported to the credit bureau. The student will be responsible for all collection costs, including penalties, interest, attorney's fees and court costs. These costs can add OVER 30% to the balance due.
