Florida Prepaid College Program

 

The Florida Prepaid College Plan can be utilized at Tallahassee Community College. The Florida Prepaid College Plan tuition contract covers the tuition, or "registration fees," at universities and community colleges. Please note the Florida Prepaid College Plan does not cover all TCC expenses. 

How It Works

The Florida Prepaid College Plan will issue documentation to the beneficiary to present to Tallahassee Community College at the time of registration and fee payment. The student will be responsible for all fees not covered by the plan by the published fee payment due date. The College will then bill the program for the tuition costs covered by the student's plan after the last drop/add date for the term.

Florida Prepaid College Plan Options

The Florida Prepaid College Plan offers three different tuition plans, a local fee plan and a dormitory plan (dormitory plan is not applicable at TCC).

 

  • Option 1 The account owner may use the Florida Prepaid College Plan benefits as originally planned. The college or university will issue a check to the student for the scholarship. These funds may then be used by the student to offset expenses that are not covered by the Prepaid contract.
  • Option 2 The account owner may transfer the contract to a family member of the original beneficiary; however, plan benefits may not be transferred in the same year usage occurred.
  • Option 3 The account owner may request a scholarship refund and receive an amount equal to the current rates for state university fees paid on a semester-by-semester basis.

Account owners may choose one of three options above if their child is also eligible for the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship.
