While Florida Prepaid Plans can be used at private and public schools both inside and outside of Florida, it’s our in-state public institutions for which they were designed. Luckily, from one end of the peninsula to the other Florida is bursting with great educational institutions, and all of them accept both Florida Prepaid College Plans and the Florida 529 Savings Plan. They come in two different types:
The state’s most prestigious schools, these universities offer a broad range of undergraduate and graduate degrees as well as top-notch facilities and the traditional “college experience” that most picture in their minds.
Formerly known as “Community Colleges,” these institutions provide affordable, accessible education at campuses throughout the state. And, while they’ve always offered Associate’s Degrees and trade certification programs, more and more Florida Colleges are now offering four-year Bachelor’s Degrees as well. And as the demand for education continues to increase in the future, so will their degree programs.
* Florida Prepaid College Plan benefits may be applied to any eligible educational institution, as defined in s. 529 of the Internal Revenue Code. The Board will transfer an amount not to exceed the current average rates payable under the Beneficiary’s contract to a State University or Florida College. For more information, please see the Master Contract. The Federal School Code Search through Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S. Department of Education, provides a comprehensive list of schools which meet the Title IV funding requirements of eligible educational institutions. Additionally, you may also ask the school’s financial aid office if the school is eligible, even if it elects not to participate, to receive Title IV funding.
