A copy of this confirmation will also be automatically emailed to the address listed in your contact information. This confirmation serves as your receipt of payment or invoice for your balance due. 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 please call our office at 352-392-5930 to request a copy.

Q. “What is UFLEF, Inc.’s Federal ID number?”
Q. “Can I register more than one person at a time?”
A. No, in order to guarantee individual and special needs are met, our registration software is configured to process individual registrations. If paying by check for multiple attendees, your organization may send one check with all participant names attached.
Q. “Am I able to add items to my registration? (ex. guest fees, bus passes)”
A. Yes, simply call our office at 352-392-5930 and request to speak with someone about your registration, or email Kimberly Brand at firstname.lastname@example.org with the addition you would like to make. Once your registration profile has been updated 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 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 or bus passes, 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 an 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 the University of Florida IFAS Office of Conferences at 352-392-5930 with Credit Card or P-Card information once travel funds are authorized.
Note: In order to qualify for reduced registration fees, payment must be submitted before the fee deadline expires.
