Where do I go for?
For your convenience, parking decals for the 2023-2024 decal year must be ordered online.
UF ensures the confidentiality of student records in accordance with the provisions of federal, state, and university regulations, including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).
The University of Florida does not send bills for tuition/fees. It is the responsibility of each student to assess fees correctly and pay on time.
Make the most of your UF experience by using resources and services that are especially designed with the off-campus student in mind.
