PAY.GOV INSTRUCTIONS

Paying your USCG application fee – made  easily!

To avoid processing delays, having to snail-mail or bring your application to a Regional USCG office (REC) and then have a check outstanding for 4-6 weeks, we highly recommend using  www.pay.gov  where you simply use a credit or debit card, or direct debit (ACH) from a bank account, enter some demographic data and follow the steps to obtain the receipt, which will go with your application.  

1 – Log in to  www.pay.gov “Pay a Merchant Mariner User Fee – Pay it right here”

2 – Click the dark blue “Continue to the Form” box

3 – On the next Informational page, type in your entries – name, address, etc. Those with red *asterisks are required.  If you are a first-time original, enter your SSN in that box, or your license Reference # if you are renewing or upgrading your current license. 

4 – Next, click and open the drop-down list of Regional Exam Centers. Select 

“Charleston –SC”.

5 – Select the correct fee for what you are doing next, using the drop-down boxes by category:    

A USCG original application  fee  is $145 ($100 for evaluation and $45 for the MMC issuance), as are Raise in Grade from Operator to Master; Renewals are $95.  

Let’s look at an Original Fee selection process, in order:
