Credit for experience

Military training you received that may qualify for college credit is evaluated after the admissions application process has been completed and admission has been granted. The FSU Office of Admissions and the Student Veterans Center will use your Joint Service Transcript (JST) to review credit earned for military experiences, training and coursework. While credits earned for military-related training do not factor into the admissions process, the academic dean for the program you major in may accept some or all of that credit and apply it toward your degree requirements.

Discounted tuition

Federal and state laws extend the in-state tuition rate to honorably discharged veterans, veteran dependents, and members of the National Guard and Reserve, regardless of their state of residency, provided they are living in Florida while they attend FSU (By state law, veteran dependents only qualify for in-state tuition during the time they are using VA educational benefits).

Veterans services

Florida State University Panama City is committed to supporting our student veterans and military dependent students by assisting them in their request for certification of VA educational benefits, earned through their service and sacrifice to our country. Please visit our Student Veterans Center page for further information about VA benefit certification.

Priority Course Registration
