All graduate students must pay tuition and fees by the payment deadline. Graduate students receiving tuition waivers will have tuition waived only, not additional fees. Graduate students must pay student activity, capital improvement, athletic, health and other fees. If a department or college has not recorded tuition waivers by the payment deadline, the graduate student must pay all tuition and fees. If a department or college has recorded a partial tuition waiver, then the graduate student must pay the remainder of the tuition owed and all fees by the payment deadline.
Graduate students receiving fellowships, tuition waivers, or assistantships must be enrolled full-time and should register as early as possible.
Graduate students who have received need-based awards, such as the "Incentive Fellowship" should be aware that the amount they receive is dependent upon need. If the student is granted tuition waivers or other fellowships or assistantships after being awarded a need-based fellowship or loan, then the total financial package may be adjusted to satisfy federal requirements.
Graduate students receiving fellowships will have their tuition deferred to the amount of the fellowship. This deferment expires upon receipt of fellowship monies.
Graduate students who will be supported by assistantships must see their program directors to complete the employment contract form.
All graduate students who have financial aid, or who need financial support to attend UCF, should inform all appropriate offices of all changes in financial status. Remember to inform the departmental office, the Office of Student Financial Assistance, and Graduate Studies of all changes related to enrollment, graduate status or financial support.
