TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – With just 10 days remaining in its Open Enrollment period, the Florida Prepaid College Board is urging families across the state who are emerging from the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic to plan with optimism for their children’s postsecondary opportunities.

Prepaid Plan Open Enrollment ends April 30, 2021, marking the last chance this year for families to lock in current plan prices for future tuition costs. Plans start at $45/month – giving families options for saving affordably.

“As challenging as things have been in the past year, we know Florida families are ready to look to brighter days ahead – and that includes a future full of opportunity for tomorrow’s college graduates,” said Board Chairman John D. Rood. “Prepaid Plans offer security and affordability at a time when families want and need both.”

During this Open Enrollment period, more than 27,000 families have locked in future college costs by signing up for one of six guaranteed and affordable Florida Prepaid College Plans. Florida families can choose from five prepaid tuition plans, as well as the optional prepaid dormitory plan, to find the options that best fit their budget and savings goals.

Florida Prepaid College Plans allow families an opportunity to start saving for college in a simple, stress-free way, locking in future college costs for less so their child’s college tuition is ready and waiting for them. Families simply pick a Prepaid Plan and make their payments. There are no worries about the ups and downs of the stock market or how much tuition might go up.

All Prepaid Plans are guaranteed by the State of Florida so families can never lose their investment, and a child has up to 10 years after high school graduation to use the plan. If a child attends an out-of-state or private college, a Prepaid Plan will pay the same amount as it would pay at a public college or university in Florida.

This year, families can purchase a 4-Year Florida University Plan for a newborn for as low as $181 a month, a 2-Year Florida College Plan for $54 a month or a 4-Year Florida College Plan for less than $116 a month.

The Board also offers a 1-Year Florida University Plan which starts as low as $45 per month and covers 30 university credit hours. Multiple family members can purchase a 1-Year Florida University Plan for the same child, sharing in the cost of saving for college.

Open Enrollment ends April 30. Families can use the online Prepaid Plan pricing tool to determine what the various plans cost based on a child’s age, as well as explore the different payment options available.
