State Employee Tuition Waiver

Florida State University Panama City looks forward to providing state employees with an opportunity to pursue their academic goals on our campus. PLEASE NOTE: There have been recent changes to the State Employee Tuition Waiver process in an effort to make it easier for you to register for the courses you need. State Employees may now register for courses during the appropriate registration window instead of waiting until the 5th day classes. However, it is important that you read/follow the instructions on the form below. Please take the time to carefully review the document found on this page and contact the FSU Panama City campus Human Resources office at (850) 770-2113 OR the Admission and Records Office at (850) 770-2311 if you have any questions.

Immunization Requirements
The Florida Legislature has mandated that, in addition to providing proof of immunization for Rubeola and Rubella measles, all university students must be informed of the risks of meningitis and hepatitis B infections. Incoming students are required to either show proof of immunization or sign a waiver declining the vaccines for meningitis and hepatitis prior to being permitted to register. Since this is a new requirement, please visit the University Health Services Website at or call (850) 644-3608 for more information. Information about the immunization requirements is included in the acceptance packet for newly admitted, readmitted, degree seeking, and special students.
