As we celebrated my daughter’s 15th birthday this week, I found myself staring at her for periods of time. Wondering where the time went, wondering if we’ll always be close, wondering what she’d grow up to become, wondering what she’d name her kids. For a brief moment I thought about college but a calm came over me because as of this year, that’s all taken care of. As you know, this year my kids became Florida Prepaid College Plan holders and since that day, I have had a weight taken off my shoulders. But you may still feel that and I know first hand how scary that can be. College Planning for Parents of High School Students is a difficult adjustment. They aren’t your babies anymore. They’re becoming young adults but still need us to help. It doesn’t have to be hard or scary, though. Let’s walk through how your child CAN go to college and you don’t have to worry.
College Planning for Parents of High School Students
It’s okay if you have a high school student without a college savings plan as of right now. My daughter was in that boat too and although her father and I have tried to save, we weren’t always in the best positional financially to do so. This year, I found Florida Prepaid College Plans and things changed for us.
Florida Prepaid College Plans is a the nation’s longest-running college savings program to lock in future college costs. When your student is ready for college, the Plan pays the costs covered under your plan type at any Florida College or State University, even if the cost of college is higher than anticipated when your plan prices were set.
With 5 different savings plans, there is always one to fit your budget that still allows your student the bet start to college.
Plan options include:
- 4-Year Florida University Plan – covers 120 credit hours at any of the Florida 12 State Universities.
- 1-Year Florida University Plan – covers 30 credit hours at any of the Florida 12 State Universities. Family members can add one year at a time, up to 4 years!
- 2 + 2 Florida Plan – covers 60 credit hours at a Florida College & 60 at a Florida State University.
- 4-Year Florida College Plan – covers 120 credit hours at any Florida State College.
- 2-Year Florida College Plan – covers your child’s AA degree (60 hours) + guarantees admission to a Florida State College.
