2017 is almost here. If you have kids, let me ask you something: How much money did you put away for their college education this year? Have you even thought about it? This will not be my first time talking to you about the Florida Prepaid College program, but I can’t help it. I seriously think it is the most amazing program ever to help you pay for your kids college education.
Remember last year, when I talked about how my parents got me a prepaid plan and I left college with ZERO debt or student loans? Many of you commented and tweeted me that it sounded like a great program and said you were going to look into it. So did you? If you did, there is a good chance you paid off at least a year of your kid’s college. The Florida Prepaid program makes it easier than ever to pay for college in easy to pay increments that you can afford.
The Florida Prepaid Program has a number of different options, but I want to focus on its newest one: The 1-Year Florida University Plan
The 1-Year Florida University Plan lets you buy one year at a time. This means, you can have smaller payments, while still working toward a concrete goal of paying for your kid’s college. This plan also gives family members a chance to contribute. Grandma and Grandpa can give the gift of a year of college… how awesome is that?
Here’s a few more stats about the 1-Year Prepaid Plan:
- The most affordable Prepaid Plan to fit your budget. The 1-Year Florida University Plan can be purchased in incremental years and allows for multiple plan purchasers.
- If the child receives a scholarship, such as Bright Futures, the amount covered by the 1-Year Florida University 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 1-Year Florida University Plan.
- The child has 10 years from the projected enrollment year selected on the application to use his/her 1-Year Florida University Plan.
As always, the amount covered by your plan can also be applied to other schools nationwide, your child does NOT have to go to a Florida school.
