Florida Prepaid College Plan

 
 

If you are enrolled in the Florida Prepaid College Tuition and/or Housing Plan the corresponding amount(s) will be posted on your account once the rates have been released for that semester by Florida Prepaid; no additional steps are needed on your end. When the initial amount(s) is posted on your account you will receive notification through your Eagle E-mail address. Partial billing is not possible against your FPP monies. You either have to use the full the billing amount or opt not to use it for that specific semester.

If you do not wish to utilize your Florida Prepaid Plan then you must visit the Cashier's Office in McTarnaghan Hall. If you neglect to do this by the last day to pay fees, Florida Prepaid will be billed. (See Academic Calendar)

Based on recent legislation the value of College Savings Plans (ie. 529) and other prepaid tuition plans offered by a State, and Coverdell education savings accounts must be reported as an asset of either the student applicant or the parent, as follows:

  • If you are reporting parental information and your parents own a qualified educational benefit plan, or education savings accounts – including "529" college savings plans and Coverdell savings accounts – report the current balance of the plan as a parent asset (Q88). The amount to be reported for a state prepaid tuition plan is the "refund value" of the plan.
  • If you are reporting parental information and you own a qualified educational benefit plan – do not report the value of those plans.
  • If you are not reporting parental information and your own (or if married, your spouse owns) any of these qualified educational benefit plans – report the current balance of the plan as a student/spouse asset (Q44). The amount to be reported for a state prepaid tuition plan is the "refund value" of the plan.
