The tuition deferment program for Veterans is set up through USF and the VA. Due to VA payments being delayed at times, a tuition deferment gives the student and the VA an extra 90 days past the start of the semester to pay for a student’s tuition and fees, per the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, Section 103PL 115-407. For more information, contact USFSM Veteran Services.
