2 + 2 Florida Plan

why_22The 2 + 2 Florida Plan allows your child to receive a degree from one of Florida’s prestigious State Universities for less than a typical four-year university degree. How? By starting your child off at one of the state’s 28 Florida Colleges (formerly Community Colleges), you’ll save money on lower-level courses before transferring to a State University to finish off their degree. Even better, students with this plan are guaranteed admission to a State University once they’ve earned their associate’s degree at a Florida College. With admission becoming ever more competitive, that can be a huge benefit.

What’s Included

The 2 + 2 Florida Plan covers tuition, tuition differential fee and other specified fees for 60 lower division credit hours at a Florida College and 60 credit hours at a State University. Without the high cost for all four years, your child 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 will do so knowing both of you have saved money.

How To Enroll

Here is what you’ll need to enroll:

  • You can go ahead and complete an online application for a Prepaid Plan now, and we’ll notify you of the new plan prices when Open Enrollment starts again.
  • 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 + 2 Florida Plan is designed to be used at a Florida College first and then at a State University, 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 + 2 Florida 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 + 2 Florida Plan.
  • The child has 10 years from the projected enrollment year selected on the application to use his/her 2 + 2 Florida Plan.

Can a child have both a Florida 529 Savings Plan and a 2 + 2 Florida Plan?
Absolutely. The plans work well together. For example, a Florida 529 Savings Plan could be used to pay for books, a computer, room & board, and other qualified higher education expenses, while the 2 + 2 Florida Plan pays tuition, tuition differential fee and other specified fees for 60 credit hours at a Florida College and 60 credit hours at a State University.
