Registration FAQs

Q. “Where is my receipt/ invoice?”

A. In your email. Upon completing your registration a copy of the confirmation will be automatically emailed to the address listed in your contact information. The email will come from our registrar, Kimberly Brand. If you have strict spam filters your confirmation may have been intercepted. If you are still unable to find your receipt, our contact information is listed at the bottom of this page.

Q. “To whom do I make my check payable and where is it mailed?”

A. Make your check payable to University of Florida Leadership & Education Foundation, Inc. (UFLEF, Inc) and mail to:

UF, IFAS, OCI
PO Box 110750
2311 Mowry Road, Bldg. 78
Gainesville, FL 32611

Q. “What is UFLEF, Inc.’s Federal ID number?”

A. 59-3104978

Q. “Can I register more than one person at a time?”

A. Yes, after confirming the details of the first registration you will be prompted to either continue to the payment area, or add an additional registration.
If paying by check for multiple attendees, your organization may send one check with all participant names attached.

Q. “I started my registration but was interrupted, am I registered?”

A. No, your registration is not marked as complete until your form of payment has been submitted. (Those sending checks or deferring payment are considered registered so long as the “check” or “invoice” option has been selected and submitted.) You will know you are registered when you arrive at a registration confirmation screen and receive a copy of the registration confirmation in your email.

Q. “My organization will not pay for guest fees, can I use multiple forms of payment on my registration?”

A. Yes, Once you arrive at the payment information section of your registration, adjust the “Amount to apply to this payment” to reflect the amount of the first form of payment, complete payment information and click the "Continue" button at the bottom of the page. Your first payment will be processed and the amount will automatically update to reflect the new “Balance Due”. Delete the payment information you previously entered, input the new information and click the "Continue" button at the bottom of the page.

Q. “I work for a US government agency that has restrictions on when I can pay for my registration, can I register now and defer payment?”

A. Yes, In order to defer payment select the invoice option when prompted for payment. This will allow you to register your attendance while providing the flexibility to pay by Check at a later date. You may also contact our office with Credit or P-Card information once travel funds are authorized. Note: In order to qualify for reduced registration fees, payment must be submitted before the applicable fee deadline expires.

Q. “Am I able to add items to my registration? (ex. tours, guest fees, workshops)”

A. Yes, contact our office. Once your registration profile has been revised with the additional information, you will receive an updated registration confirmation in your email. If you will be paying for this addition with a different form of payment from that of your original registration, please have the new payment information available when you call.

Q. “I need to cancel my registration, what are my options?”

A. Refer to the cancellation policy listed on the symposium web site under REGISTRATION INFORMATION.
