Veteran Deferments

  • Qualified veterans seeking deferment from Registrar's Office Veteran Services must visit that office and obtain approval to extend the payment deadline. Payment deadlines are listed in the academic calendar. Students eligible for financial aid adequate to cover all tuition and fees are not eligible for VA deferments.


Third Party Payments Information

  • Students who have authorization or a letter of intent from an approved third party source (e.g., a company, embassy or a state or government agency) must submit such documentation with the fee invoice to the Student Account Services Office, Millican Hall, room 109, by the fee payment deadline. Employer tuition plans that reimburse the employee do not qualify. The third party source must agree to pay the tuition upon receiving an invoice "without grade contingencies."


Florida Prepaid College Plan Information

  • For any enrolled student who has a Florida Prepaid College Plan, the University of Central Florida will automatically defer only the portion of the tuition rate covered under the plan. All fees not covered by the plan are due by the fee payment deadline. If the student does not wish to utilize the Florida Prepaid Tuition Plan, then the student must submit a form to Student Account Services by the first day of classes in each term.
  • The standard plan does not cover local fees or incidental fees such as material/supply fees, the UCF ID Service and the access fee, the distance learning course fee, the technology fee and the equipment fee. The local fee plan, which is indicated on the Florida Prepaid Tuition Plan card, covers local fees but not the transportation access fee and incidental fees.


Financial Aid Automatic Deferments

  • The fee invoice reflects the dollar amount of the student's deferment. If the total amount of tuition and fees exceeds the amount of the deferment, the difference must be paid by the due date noted on the student's fee invoice. Different programs require varying hours of enrollment for eligibility. Students must be sure they are registered for the required number of hours.
  • Deferments are available to students who have completed the application process prior to the payment deadline.
  • The following programs are not included in the automatic deferral program: Work Study programs, third party deferrals and other waivers, and direct-pay scholarships.
  • Automatic deferral does not relieve the student of fee liability. Simply ceasing to attend class meetings will not cancel the student's debt to the university. Students must drop from their classes during the drop period and petition for a late drop through the offices of Academic Services or Graduate Studies or be held responsible for the payment of the original fee assessment.
  • Students who had a financial aid deferment but lost it through verification, cancellation or other reasons are still responsible for paying their fees. The balance may be subject to a late fee if not paid on time.
  • Not attending classes or withdrawing after add/drop does not eliminate the requirement to pay fees.
  • Dual-enrolled hours (transient hours) taken at another institution are not considered for automatic deferral purposes.
