Florida law allows Pensacola State College to issue a deferment (postponement) of tuition and
fees once each academic year for Chapter 30, 35, 1606, 1607 VA students and once per semester for
Chapter 33 VA students. You may apply for the deferment by providing a copy of your fee schedule
to the Veteran Services office on any campus. The deferment is a promissory note which will be
notarized. The deferment must be repaid regardless of the status of your receipt of VA benefits.
