Students should be certified for their Veterans Affairs Education Benefits at the beginning of each semester after enrollment. The VA allows direct deposit for GI Benefits.

Your tuition may be deferred if there is a delay in the receipt of your benefits. A deferment is not automatic; you must request one through the Office of of Student Affairs/Veterans Affairs. Deferments must be approved and processed by the official tuition payment deadline.

*Third Party/Agency Billing Agreement - to be used by Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation veterans only.

**Self-Identified Veterans at the Panama City campus will have access to the Study Room for Veterans located in the Holley Academic building, room A212.

***Veteran Deferment 3rd Party Contract - All Chapter 30 (Montgomery GI Bill) and Chapter 33 (Post 9-11) students need a deferment placed on their account before financial aid disburses. Any Chapter 35 Dependent not receiving a Financial Aid Disbursement may need and qualify for a Veterans Deferment. Deferments are not automatic and you can check with Marcie Davis in the VA Office to see if you need a deferment for your current semesters tuition.
