The University receives an electronic file from Florida Prepaid for all registered
students. Florida Prepaid deferments are posted for all students registered prior
to the fee payment deadline each term.
Deferments MUST be cancelled by the 5th day of class.
Students need to contact Student Financial Services, Third Party Billing (CASS Building
Suite 103 or 850 412-5035) in the event that they wish for the Florida Prepaid deferment
to be canceled.
Adding or Dropping Classes
Contact should be made with this office in the event courses are added and/or dropped
during the first week of classes to ensure that the proper deferment is placed on
the student’s account.
Deferments for students are processed per academic term. Florida Pre-Paid deferments
that do not cover the balance of tuition and fees due will need to pay or have sufficient
financial aid to cover the balance due by the fee payment deadline. An invoice will
be sent to Florida Prepaid 30 days after the beginning of the term. In the event
that the Florida Pre-Paid does not pay for the invoiced amount, the student will be
placed on cashiering hold for the unpaid balance/reimbursement of refunds received.
The student may also incur the addition of the $100.00 late payment fee. In addition,
the student will not be able to receive a transcript, register for future terms and/or
receive a diploma until the outstanding balance is paid in full.
