No, fee waivers and exemptions are not accepted. Tuition and fees for online courses at UF must be paid by a credit card or a check drawn on a U.S. bank. UF also charges a non-refundable service charge when paying by credit card.

Is any financial aid available?
There is financial aid available for master’s degree students who qualify. You can fill out a FAFSA form if you are interested in financial aid and use UF’s school code: 001535.
Graduate certificate programs and courses taken as a non-degree seeking student do not qualify for federal financial aid, but students may qualify for private loans.
