How To Enroll

Here is what you’ll need to enroll:

  • Be sure to have read the Master Contract.
  • Have your and the child’s Social Security Numbers available.
  • Have your bank account information available, if you would like to set up automatic withdrawal.
  • Have the driver’s license of the child’s parent or legal guardian to submit proof of Florida residency online.

Flexibility

The 2-Year Florida College Plan is designed to be used at a Florida College, but the amount covered by this plan can also be applied to other schools nationwide. Also, other important flexibility considerations include:

  • If the child receives a scholarship, such as Bright Futures, the amount covered by the 2-Year Florida College Plan, not just what you paid in, can be refunded or used to pay for tuition and fees not covered by the scholarship.
  • If the child moves out of Florida, the child remains eligible for in-state tuition and fees at a Florida College or State University while using his/her 2-Year Florida College Plan.
  • The child has 10 years from the projected enrollment year selected on the application to use his/her 2-Year Florida College Plan.

How can a Prepaid Plan and a Savings Plan work together?

Prepaid Plans and Savings Plans work well together. For example, you could use a Prepaid Plan to cover up to four years of tuition and fees and a Savings Plan to pay for books, a computer, room and board. If you don’t want to use a Prepaid Plan to save for all four years of tuition and fees, you could purchase a 2-Year Florida College Plan or one or more 1-Year University Plans and also open a Savings Plan.

Where can the child use this plan?

The 2-Year Florida College Plan is designed to be used for 60 lower division credit hours at a Florida College, but the amount covered by the plan can also be applied to State Universities, or other schools – nationwide.

Is saving for two years of school really worth it?

Absolutely. An associate’s degree will give your child a decided advantage when applying for jobs over those with just a high school diploma. And two years is also enough to earn several technical certifications that can lead to fulfilling careers.

What if my child decides later to go for a 4-year degree?

By signing up for a 2-Year Florida College Plan now, you’ve helped them to take care of 60 lower division credit hours at a Florida College, meaning they are that much close closer to their 4-year degree.

What happens if the child graduates early or didn’t use all the benefits?

Remaining credit hours in the 2-Year Florida College Plan can be used for additional undergraduate courses, transferred to an eligible family member of the child, or refunded to the Account Owner.
