UF Online Students

Students enrolled through UF Online are eligible for a Mobile ID and can request a physical GATORONE card at a cost of $10 (the cost of the mobile ID is covered by the UF Online program).

The GATORONE policy requires all Employees and Students, except for those enrolled in UF Online programs, to obtain a GATORONE ID. It provides an exception for UF Online students because they are not traditionally on campus and do not pay the required GATORONE Service Fee.

The GATORONE Service Fee is issued in accordance with Florida Statute 1009.24(14)(c) and Board of Governor’s Regulation 7.003, and per the guidelines, UF Online students are exempt from this fee.  Students who pay this fee receive their first card at no cost and the mobile ID at no cost.
