It is never too early to start planning and saving for college! With Florida Prepaid you can get a head start and save a lot of money. There are five amazing plans to select from and while they are designed to be used with Florida College and State University, the amount covered by the plan can be applied and used nationwide.
Florida Prepaid offers you the ability to start saving now and worry less later. The plan covers the essentials varying with which type of school including tuition, athletic fees, health fee, student financial fees, and more. You have the opportunity to select the plan that is right for you.
If the thought of another payment during hard times makes you nervous, I feel you! I am at that place in life. What makes me open my eyes and reflect is knowing the cost of college now and what the cost may me in another fourteen years when my first child makes the choice to where he wants to go to school. If I can’t afford it now, can I afford it then? This is why I love that you can do monthly payments and find the plan that works best for you and your family.
You make the decision if you want to have the cost covered for a Florida College (Formally known as Community Colleges) or a University. Make a selection from 1 year University all the way up to 4 years. No matter the choice you make for your family, it will be one that takes a burden off the cost down the road.
The 2 + 2 Florida Plan covers Tuition, as well as the mandatory Tuition Differential
Fee and Local Fees, for 60 lower division credit hours at one of 28 Florida Colleges and 60 credit hours
at one of Florida’s State Universities. Without the high cost for all four years, beneficiaries will still walk
across the same stage with the same degree in the same amount of time as if they went straight to a
State University, and having saved money.
I feel the above is the best for my child at this time and the benefits of having the security knowing he can go to college makes me feel good. Time is limited to enroll and the opportunity to WIN some of your child’s education for FREE is even more limited!
