Payments on all financial obligations will be applied on the basis of the age of debt. The oldest debt will be paid first.

If you have trouble accessing your GatorLink account, you can email UF Helpdesk at or call (352) 392-HELP(4357).

Payment Options

Online Payments

May be made by electronic check (e-check) or credit card online at ONE.UF.

  • E-check is a fast, free and convenient method to pay from your checking account. You will need your financial Institution’s ACH routing number and checking account number from one of your checks. There is no charge for this payment method.
  • Credit card payments may be made using MasterCard, Discover or American Express. A 2.6-percent non-refundable service charge is added to all online credit card transactions.

Mail or In-Person Payments

Use a personal check, cashier’s check or money order payable in U.S. currency drawn on a U.S. financial institution. Make payable to “University of Florida” and include your name, UFID, local address, and local telephone number. Place payment in the secure drop box located outside the University Bursar’s office located at S113 Criser Hall or mail to:

University Bursar
S113 Criser Hall
PO Box 114050
Gainesville, Florida 32611-4050

Mailed payments are considered on-time based on the date received by the cashier, and not based on the date of postmark.

Self-Service Payroll Deductions

Voluntary payroll deduction is a self-service function of myUFL in which the employee will have full control of setup and management of these payments. One-time or multiple recurring payments can be setup to pay charges. Setup is simple and easy. To begin, please log into myUFL > Main Menu > My Self Service > Payroll and Compensation > Voluntary Deductions.

Departmental Payments

Returned Payments

If a check or e-check payment posted to your account is returned by your financial Institution because of insufficient funds or a closed account, the returned payment, along with a service charge ranging from $25 to $40 (assessed depending on the face value of the returned payment) will be charged to your account. You will receive an email notice regarding the returned payment. The email will include instructions for clearing the returned payment. Returned payments and service charge must be paid by money order or cashier’s check.

A $10 service fee will be charged if the account and/or ACH routing numbers for the e-checks are inaccurate and payment can be made online again.
