Veteran Deferment Policy

Submit this form ONLY if you have already submitted a Certification Request Form and are requesting to have your tuition deferred for the semester/term.

Your Certification Request Form MUST be submitted no later than the first day of the semester in order for your deferment to be processed. If it has been submitted after that date, your deferment will not be processed.


If you have not submitted a Certification Request Form to the Office of Veterans Affairs,
the deferment request will not be processed.


When a student requests a deferment, a hold will be placed on that student's file that will not allow registration for any future semesters/terms and the student will not be allowed to receive grades or transcripts.  Once the student's bill is paid in full by the last day of the semester, then the hold can be lifted.

for the semester that I am requesting a deferment.
