Tuition Payment FAQs

 

When is tuition due?

The payment deadline date is published on the academic calendar online at http://www.registrar.sdes.ucf.edu/calendar/academic/. It also appears on your fee invoice, which may be found on your myUCF portal (Student Self Service > Student Accounts > Fee Invoice). If you received an authorized deferral, your due date on the fee invoice may be adjusted. Courtesy email reminders are sent periodically to your Knights Email account prior to the payment deadline date.

How much do I owe for tuition?

You may obtain your balance from your myUCF portal by selecting Student Self Service > Student Accounts > Fee Invoice. Select the term. The Total Fee Assessment is the total balance due. Anticipated financial aid, Bright Futures awards, or Florida Prepaid College Plan amounts may be deducted from the total balance. Always verify financial aid information after the Add Deadline date on the Academic Calendar and prior to the payment deadline date.

On the payment deadline date, what is the latest time I can submit a payment?

Payment will be considered on time until 11:59 p.m. EST on the payment deadline date.

Can I set-up a tuition payment plan?

Yes. The payment plan is a 2-payment design in which the student pays $15 upfront to pay only 50% of the total tuition bill by the regular payment deadline, therefore avoiding the $100 late payment fee, and being dropped for non-payment. The student is then responsible for paying the remaining 50% by the Payment Plan deadline on the fee invoice.

Students will sign into their myUCF account and click on the “Payment Plan” link to sign up. The payment plan will be available the week following the Add/Drop Deadline on the Academic Calendar. Students who sign-up for the payment plan after the Payment Deadline will be assessed a Late Payment fee.

How do I make an online payment?

Payments may be made online through your myUCF portal. Once you login, click on the following: Student Self Service > Student Accounts > View Your Account (or Fee Invoice) > Due Charges/EPay. Select either the “Credit Card” or “Electronic Check” payment option. Input your credit card or checking account information, and submit the payment.

What if I only have a VISA credit card?

If you only have a VISA credit card and you have no other payment methods, you may be able to use your VISA card with the following options:

  • Obtain a cash advance through your credit card, and use it to purchase a money order to pay your bill.
  • Use a convenience check issued by your credit card company. Checks issued by your credit card company must be mailed to the mailing address on our website as they cannot be processed online.
What if I only have a VISA debit card?

If you only have a VISA debit card and the debit card is linked to a bank account, you may be able to pay through the e-check payment channel. Your bank routing and account number will be needed to process this payment. If the VISA debit card is not linked to a bank account, this option will not apply and another source of payment will be needed.

How can I pay online and avoid the two percent convenience fee?

Only payments made using the credit card option are assessed a two percent fee. You may pay using the e-check option, which does not have a convenience fee. Your bank routing and account number are required for this form of payment.

Can I pay over the phone?

We do not accept any form of payment over the phone. You have the option to make a payment online through your myUCF portal, mail a check payment, or drop off a check payment to Student Account Services.
