No doubt that living in Florida has it’s benefits. Open Enrollment is the only time of the year families can purchase a Florida Prepaid College Plan. Did you know In 2007, the newborn price for a 4-Year Florida University plan was $14,616.26. In 2013, the same plan cost $53,729.20. Now it’s back down to less than $30,000, thanks to controls on tuition in Florida.
When my kids were young, I unfortunately didn’t live in Florida in order to start a great program for them. My oldest son is currently 39 and still paying off his student loans. Is that what you want for your children?
If you move out of Florida that you will still be billed at in-state tuition rates when using their plan at a Florida college or state university. This is the way to pre pay for the future cost of college. You have up to 10 years after your child graduates to use your savings. What if your child gets a scholarship? You can get a refund or your child can use the money for other tuition needs.
It’s almost like investing your money without the risk of losing it. It’s a win-win for all of you. You can enroll in a Florida Prepaid plan through February 28, 2018. Use the promo code Social1718.
There are five different plans to choose from: a 1-Year Florida University Plan, a 2-Year Florida College Plan, a 4-Year Florida College Plan, a 2+2 Florida College Plan, and a 4-Year Florida University Plan. I chose to go with the 2+2 Florida College Plan. It will cost less than a typical four-year university degree.
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.
The Florida Prepaid College Savings Plan open enrollment period is almost over!!! This is the one time each year in which you can sign up for one of five plans. The open enrollment period runs through February 28th, 2018. To learn more about these plans, visit: MyFloridaPrepaid.com Check out this new FAQ page, if you have specific questions: bit.ly/fppfaq. And if you decide to sign-up for a plan, use my code: Social1718 to receive $25 off the application fee (normally $50).
