Please be aware that if paying by credit card, a $7 service fee will be added automatically to the $30 fee, making the total application fee $37. If payment is sent by mail with attached fee cover, the $30 check must be drawn on a U.S. bank and made payable to the University of Florida. Foreign money orders will not be accepted. If it is difficult to submit the application fee because of currency restrictions in your country, you may ask a friend or relative in the United States to submit the fee on your behalf.

The application will not be processed without the application fee, and there are no fee waivers or postponements of payment.
