  • The UF Research Participant Payments (RPP) module in myUFL is used to register studies, record participant payments, and store research participant data in a confidential and secure central database. Banking & Merchant Services offers several ways to pay research participants with the University of Florida Visa Prepaid Debit Card being the most popular and versatile option. These cards are available free-of-charge to research studies and offer many benefits over other payment types. The UF Visa® Prepaid Debit Card is secure, universally accepted, and can be used for in-store and online purchases, as well as ATM transactions. You may notice the navigation in myUFL is different than what is shown in these training resources.  Rest assured, these changes are primarily look and feel differences. All policies and procedures discussed in these materials are accurate and up to date. Training materials will be updated to reflect the new look and menu of myUFL.
