Payment Options


Payments are applied to university “Charges Due” on student accounts based on a priority of paying the oldest charge first.

The University of Florida offers several payment options.

Online payments

To make a payment by electronic check (e-check), credit/debit card or international payment via Western Union, log into ONE.UF, select “View My Account” under the Campus Finances (Bursar) section, then choose Make a Payment.

Electronic check (EFT/ACH)

A fast, free and convenient method to pay from a checking account.

  • Information required: the financial institution’s ACH routing number and the checking account number located on a check
  • There is no service charge for this payment method.

Credit/Debit card payments

Credit or debit card payments can be made using American Express, VISA, MasterCard, or Discover Card.

  • A 2.6 % non-refundable service charge is added to the balance paid on all online credit card transactions.
  • The credit card payment will show on the student’s payment card statement as follows: UNIV FL ONLINE PMNT GAINESVILLE FL.
