The 4-Year University Plan is just one option for getting a Bachelor’s Degree.   Florida Colleges now offer  Bachelor’s Degree programs and an increasing number of  families are recognizing the value in the 4-Year Florida College Plan as well as the 2 + 2 Florida Plan, which allows students to obtain a Bachelor’s degree and the experience of both a State College and a State University.  For those that purchase a 2 + 2 Florida Plan or a 4-Year University Plan, the Board also offers an optional add-on University Dormitory Plan.

Additionally, the Florida Prepaid College Plan is - and always has been - financially sound. It is also guaranteed by the state of Florida, families have nothing to lose, dispelling concern for loss of investment. To qualify for a plan, the child or the child’s parent/guardian must be a Florida resident. Parents, grandparents and friends can purchase a plan.

About the Florida Prepaid College Program

For more than 25 years, the Florida Prepaid College Board has provided families with financially sound options to help save for college. Since 1988, Florida families have purchased more than 1.6 million Florida Prepaid College Plans and invested more than $6.7 billion, making it the largest and longest continuous operating prepaid plan in the nation. The Florida Prepaid College Board is committed to helping Floridians save for future qualified higher education expenses through the Florida Prepaid College Program and the Florida 529 Savings Plan. Florida Prepaid is the largest, longest running and most successful prepaid plan in the nation with nearly one out of 10 Florida children, from newborns to high school students, currently having a Florida Prepaid College Plan. Created in 1987 by the Florida Legislature, the Florida Prepaid College Board sold the first prepaid tuition plan in 1988 and was named “The Stanley G. Tate Florida Prepaid College Program” in 2006 to honor its founding chairman. No taxpayer money is used to operate the Florida Prepaid College Program.
