Emergency Funds for Military/Veteran Students

Emergency funding of up to $1,000 per household is available to enrolled military/veteran students who have received face-to-face instruction on the Panama City campus for fall 2018. Start your application here.

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.

At FSU Panama City, our VA certification process has been centralized through the FSU Student Veterans Center in Tallahassee to ensure compliance and that services are in keeping with our commitment to the needs of our student veterans and military dependents.

Initiate your VA benefits request by reviewing the application checklist well before the beginning of each semester in order to ensure timely completion and receipt of your funds.

FSU Panama City’s active-military students, student veterans and military/veteran dependents using federal benefits are eligible for priority registration, which allows these students to register for future semester courses during the first selection window of each course-registration cycle. After registering for their courses, each student must submit the university’s online Request for Benefits form in order to have their benefit-certification documents submitted within the required timeframe.

If you are a veteran or military dependent prospective student interested in attending FSU Panama City, please visit our Military Students page to learn more about our campus, academic programs and other information about our campus.

Staff at the FSU Student Veterans Center look forward to working with our FSU Panama City student veterans and military dependents, assisting them in their certification process and answering any questions you may have regarding your VA benefits certification.
