Your Florida 529 Savings Plan can be used to pay for any Qualified Higher Education Expense as defined in Section 529 of the federal tax code. They include:

  1. Tuition;
  2. Fees;
  3. Room and board expenses during an academic period in which the student is enrolled at least half-time in a degree, certificate or other program that leads to a recognized educational credential awarded by an Eligible Educational Institution;
  4. Textbooks, supplies and equipment required for enrollment or attendance;
  5. Computers, peripheral equipment, software and internet service primarily used by the student; and
  6. Special needs services incurred in connection with enrollment or attendance.

You can withdraw and use the funds for other purposes, but doing so may have tax consequences.
