As a Partner School Exchange Student, you do not pay for the cost of your courses ("tuition") since this is waived under the exchange agreement between UF and your home university. This agreement ONLY covers tuition and DOES NOT cover fees for on-campus housing, library fines, labs, computer services, parking tickets, sports courses, leisure courses, etc. You are responsible for paying non-tuition fees in a timely manner. Your final transcript will not issued until you pay all debt to UF.
After the registration period ("Drop/add" deadline) is over, the International Center submits a fee waiver to the University Bursar'€s office to waive your tuition. Any changes in your registration after the drop/add deadline may result in an alteration of tuition. You must notify the Exchange Coordinator of any modification to your course schedule after Drop/add.
